Shrimp Po Boys

Last night I made shrimp po boys for dinner. Not only were they super tasty, they were so fast and easy to make. In the interest of saving time I bought shrimp that had already been peeled and deveined. I made a sauce similar to the one I'd make for fish sticks and put it all on a soft baguette with some shredded romain lettuce. You could add a tomato slice or whatever else you want, but they were great as is.

1/2 lb peeled and deveined shrimp (i got 31-40 count and 1/2 lb was perfect for 2 sandwiches)
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1 Tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
peanut or sunflower oil for cooking shrimp

mayo and sour cream plus any of the following:
grated garlic, grated dill pickle, hot sauce, horseradish, whole grain mustard, parsley, dill, or whatever else your little heart desires

mix up sauce and set aside to let flavors develop
heat oil in large frying pan
mix crumbs, flour, and seasoned salt in a bowl
pat shrimp dry and toss to coat in bread crumb mixture
fry shrimp until just browned on each side

fill baguette with sauce, shrimp, and shredded lettuce
