Cajun Seafood Recipes

New Orelans Style Cooking includes Cajun seafood recipes for culinary delights such as such as jambalaya, crawfish pie, and file gumbo!

Crawfish, shrimp, oysters, and crab are staples in New Oreans cuisine.

Seafood is so versatile. It can be boiled, blackened, broiled, fried, baked, and barbecued, or made into gumbo, chowder or even soup!

Seafood sandwiches are a New Orleans specialty. You will often hear people ask for a "Po'Boy on french dressed."

A po'boy is a traditional New Orleans style seafood sandwich on crusty french bread. The shrimp, oysters, or crawfish are usually fried. It is "dressed", if it is loaded with lettuce, tomato or mayonnaise!

Shrimp Po'Boy


  • 2 pounds shrimp (or oysters, crawfish)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • Creole seasoning or salt/pepper

  • Tomato slices
  • Zatarains Fish Fry or cornmeal
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Mayonnaise or butter
  • French bread or baguette

Mix egg and milk together. Season the shrimp. Dip shrimp into egg mixture, then coat with fish fry. Fry until golden brown.
