When I make my marvelous Shrimp Po’ Boys (adapted from Tyler Florence) I always take a minute to whip up extra of this little spice mixture used in those Po’ Boys. I call it Hot & Smokin’ Po’ Boy Spice. Actually, I don’t limit this spice mixture to just Po’ Boys; I’ve started mixing it up even when I am not making them and started using it on all kinds of things. I like it so much it’s kinda become a signature “house” seasoning at my place.
Tyler Florence…my hero! I used his basic recipe for Po’ Boys – with a few deletions and additions, and it is amazing! His Creole sauce is so good, my son went nuts over it. While these may look like a basic Po’ Boy, I promise you, they are anything but. I’ve had them in many different areas of the country and these beat out every restaurant version.
