Shrimp Po'Boys

In addition to being tasty, these were also pretty simple to make. The remoulade just involves some measuring and stirring, and the shrimp cooks up within minutes. I also recommend using a nice soft but crusty French baguette. I always think that the bread can make or break a sandwich, and the French baguette we used definitely made this sandwich.
