shrimp po' boy

This twist on the Louisiana favorite piles grilled shrimp and creamy-dressed cabbage onto a crusty bun. Bread that’s soft on the inside and crusty on the outside is perfect for a Po’ Boy sandwich. We grill both sides of a whole-wheat bun for that added crunch. You may need a few extra napkins to enjoy it, but this quick and easy sandwich is well worth it. Serve with: Sautéed corn and bell peppers.
Makes 4 servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients
2 cups finely shredded red cabbage2 tablespoons dill pickle relish2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt1 pound peeled and deveined raw shrimp, (51-60 per pound; see Shopping Tip)4 teaspoons canola oil, divided1 teaspoon chili powder1/2 teaspoon paprika1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper4 whole-wheat hot dog buns, or small sub rolls, split4 tomato slices, halved1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
Directions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine cabbage, relish, mayonnaise and yogurt in a medium bowl.
  3. Toss shrimp with 2 teaspoons oil, chili powder, paprika and pepper in a medium bowl. Place the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a small bowl. Dip a pastry brush in water, then in the oil and lightly brush the inside of each bun (or roll).
  4. Place a grill basket (see Kitchen Tip) on the grill. Add the shrimp and spread in a single layer. Grill, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Open the buns and grill, turning once, until toasted on both sides, about 1 minute total.
  5. To assemble the sandwiches, divide tomato and onion among the buns. Spread about 1/3 cup cabbage mixture down the middle of each and top with about 1/2 cup grilled shrimp.
