Cant say I have... but it sure sounds good about now....

BTW You gave me an Idea to add shrimp to my Stuffed Sandwich recipe

I guess a pound of fresh peeled shrimp will do then you need the following

1 (7 ounce) jar pitted Kalamata olives, drained and sliced
1 1/2 cups diced, peeled white onion
1 pound ripe beefsteak tomatoes, chopped
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves pressed garlic
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/4 cup wine vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
10 hard rolls
3 tablespoons soft butter
3 fresh basil leaves
Mix the olives, onion, tomatoes and cheeses in a large bowl. Set aside. Blend the garlic, salt,
pepper, basil, vinegar and oil into a dressing by placing in a covered jar and shaking. Pour it over
the ingredients in the bowl, and toss gently. Set aside.
Prepare each roll by cutting a shallow plug hole 2-inches in diameter out of the top, then pulling
out the soft inside. Make sure you leave some bread on the bottom. The pulled out bread can be
saved to make bread crumbs later.

Melt butter, add the fresh basil leaves and allow the basil flavors to infuse into the butter. Brush
some of the basil butter into the bottom of each roll. Place about 2/3 cup of the filling into each
roll, then replace the plug on the top. Use aluminum foil to wrap each sandwich individually. If not
cooking right away, place in the refrigerator and remove about an hour before baking. Bake in a
350 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Shellfish allergy... better to Stick to a Monte Cristo

4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup Christopher Ranch roasted garlic
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
6 slices large, square white bread
1 pound thinly sliced rosemary or smoked Ham
5 ounces thinly sliced Swiss cheese
4 (8-inch) bamboo skewers
3 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup garlic-flavored olive oil
Honey-Balsamic and Apricot Syrup (recipe to follow)
Cream together cream cheese, roasted garlic and parsley. Spread 1/5th of the mixture onto the
first slice of bread. Top with 3 ounces ham and 1 ounce Swiss cheese. Top with another slice of
bread and repeat layering with cream cheese, ham, Swiss cheese and bread. Finish off the top
with the last slice of bread. Slide 1 bamboo skewer into the top of the sandwich at each side. With
a sharp serrated knife, cut crusts off the edges of the sandwich. Make 2 diagonal slices through
the sandwich to create 4 equal triangles.

Whisk together eggs and milk. Dip each sandwich skewer into the egg mixture, coat all sides well
and place on a separate plate. Heat olive oil on a griddle over medium heat. Place all of the
skewers onto the griddle and brown for approximately 2 minutes on each side.

Serve with Honey-
Balsamic and Apricot Syrup.
Honey-Balsamic and Apricot Syrup is made by...
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup small diced yellow onions
2 tablespoons Christopher Ranch chopped garlic
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary

Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent. Add
garlic and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and let simmer for an additional 10
minutes. Remove from heat and place into a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.

Ooh, one of my favorites. We always called it Welsh Rabbit. I think at some point it was changed to "rarebit" as a way to gentrify a perceived poke at the Welsh.

Sometime when you're doing this, substitute ginger ale for the beer. Let it sit out until it's flat. Good stuff, either way.

Daddybare not my recipe but this is how to make a shrimp po-boy.

a po-boy is a submarine type sandwhich which was invented in NEW ORLEANS around 1929.

try using a remoulade instead of using mayo is more authentic for the shrimp.

Another version is roastbeef, ham, chicken, but they use mayo for these except for the roastbeef. in which they use the gravy it was cooked in.

Vegetable oil, for frying
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 tablespoons Essence, recipe follows
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
2 small French bread loaves, each about 10-inches long
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup mayonnaise, or more to taste
Red pepper sauce
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 large ripe beefsteak tomato, thinly sliced
Sliced dill pickles, optional
Hot sauce, for serving, optional
Potato chips, for serving, optional (recommended: Zapp's)
Heat the oil in a large sauce pan or preheat a deep fryer to 360 degrees F. Season the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of the Essence, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the cayenne. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour and cornmeal and season with the remaining 2 tablespoons of the Essence, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne. Dredge the shrimp in the seasoned flour mixture, coating the shrimp completely. Fry the shrimp in the hot oil, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, stirring constantly, about 4 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season with salt and hot sauce. Split the French bread loaves in half and brush both cut sides of the bread with some of the melted butter. Using a spatula, spread the mayonnaise on both sides of the bread, then sprinkle with hot sauce. Divide the shrimp evenly between the 2 sandwiches and garnish with the lettuce, tomato slices, sliced pickles and hot sauce, if desired. Serve with potato chips.

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons salt

2 tablespoons garlic powder

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

Yield: 2/3 cup
Remoulade Sauce

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
3 tablespoons Creole whole-grain mustard
3 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons chopped parsley leves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process for 30 seconds. Use immediately or store. Will keep for several days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

let me know what you think! Enjoy and thanks again for the great recipes.
