  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2-3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning or Creole seasoning blend (or more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 French sandwich rolls or use baguettes
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 large tomato sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper thinly sliced (optional for some spiciness)


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha or use chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard or use Creole mustard
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish I used HOT
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 jalapeno pepper minced
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced (or use garlic powder)
  • Juice from half a lemon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning blend
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Hot sauce to taste


  • First, season your shrimp with a good helping of Cajun or Creole Seasonings. 
  • Heat a grill to medium heat and lightly oil the grill grates. Grill the shrimp a couple minutes per side, until they are cooked through. Alternatively, cook the shrimp on the stove top in a grill pan, or saute them in a large oiled pan.
  • While the shrimp is grilling, lightly toast your French rolls. They are best when they are crispy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside.
  • Pile the grilled shrimp onto the buns along with shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced peppers (optional, I like to include them).
  • Finally, drizzle them with a creamy Cajun remoulade sauce that really nails the flavor. So delicious.
  • Whisk or mix all of the remoulade ingredients together in a medium bowl. Or, process them together in a blender or food processor. Use as needed.



This makes 2 large sandwiches. You can easily divide the ingredients to make 4 smaller sandwiches.
