Meal: Shrimp Po’boy with Spicy Ketchup

Side: Corn salad

Shrimp is one of my favorite fish. I can eat it as a snack or a meal any day of the week. This past week I was searching for meals in my Cooking Light cook book. Every time I go through my Cooking Light cook book I pass this recipe. I do not know how long I have had it tagged, but last week I finally made it. The sandwiches came out really well. The corn salad left something to be desired. The corn and lime in this recipe did not do so well in my opinion. I will have to come up with a citrus dressing that we will enjoy, and that will work with the corn. Until I have come up with a winning corn salad I will not post it. However these sandwiches were awesome and great for the start of summer!
