Cajun Po’ Boys with Remoulade and Hot Sauce

Heart and soul cooking from the Deep South...

Cajuns are the descendants of French settlers who made their home in Louisiana in the 1700s - consequently, Cajun food combines the flavours and cooking methods of simple American soul food with traditional French cuisine. For example, the ‘holy trinity’ of Cajun food (onion, celery and bell pepper) is based upon the French ‘mirepoix’.

This holy trinity of flavours - here in the form of dried onion, celery, paprika and cayenne pepper - is key to the Cajun rub that seasons the prawns in this traditional Louisiana sandwich! We’re serving it ‘dressed’ with shredded lettuce, hot sauce, remoulade and pickles, with some incredibly moreish deep-fried cornmeal balls known as hush puppies.
