What you’ll need for the sandwich:

Vegetable oil

4 Costanzo’s French rolls

4 tbsp melted butter

1 tsp minced garlic

3 eggs, beaten

2 tbsp Creole seasoning

¾ cup all-purpose flour

2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 cups panko

2 cups shredded lettuce

What you’ll need for the remoulade sauce:

½ cup mayo

1 tbsp horseradish

1 tsp pickle relish

1 tsp minced garlic

½ tsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp ponzu lime sauce

Combine the butter and garlic and spread the mix onto the Costanzo’s rolls and toast them in the oven until brown. Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan until 360 degrees. Mix creole seasoning and flour. Dredge shrimp in flour mixture, then dip in the egg and roll in panko. Fry shrimp in batches until golden brown. Mix all ingredients to make remoulade sauce and spread it onto the rolls. Top with the fried shrimp and fresh shredded lettuce, and enjoy!
