Shrimp Po’ Boy

Sweet shrimp get coated with fresh herbs, take a dip in buttermilk and are dredged in cornmeal.  And THEN, they get fried up until they get a lovely crunchy outside, but remain tender on the inside.  Layer them between your favorite french bread and don't forget to slather with remoulade sauce (a riff on Thousand Island dressing).

Wondering what to cook for dinner?  This is the answer!
