Cajun Kick – Remoulade & Shrimp Po Boys

It’s winter and here in the Mid-Atlantic it can get a bit cold and dreary. I decided that the best way to warm myself up this winter was to cook some good ‘ole cajun food. What better, easy weeknight meal than homemade remoulade sauce and shrimp po boys?! It was a really fun meal because it was easy and quick and both recipes were great!
