Fried Green Tomato BLT with Shrimp Remoulade

Fried Green Tomato BLT with Shrimp Remoulade

Over the last few days I enjoyed some blackened swordfish and that reminded me of the blackened shrimp in the fried green tomato with shrimp remoulade po'boy that I often make while green tomatoes are available. The fried green tomato BLT sandwiches were still on my mind and I was craving more of them. With that thought the gears started to turn and I had a new idea; how about a fried green tomato BLT sandwich with shrimp remoulade? Once I got that idea stuck in my head there was little that could stop me from making them and I certainly glad that I did! I mean you really cannot go wrong adding plump and juicy shrimp seasoned with a tasty blend of herbs and spices with a touch of heat to an already great sandwich!

This looks so good! I'm going to have to try this. Does having the shrimp and the remoulade on the top make the bread soggy?
