  1. Add shrimp to bowl and pour in buttermilk and Tony’s Pepper Sauce. Sprinkle on Tony’s seasoning and Italian seasoning to taste and stir to combine everything together.
  2. Pour Tony’s fish fry mix into a shallow dish.
  3. Fill a heavy bottomed pot halfway with cooking oil. Once heated, take shrimp in batches and coat in the fry batter, then carefully drop shrimp in the oil.
  4. After 3-4 minutes of frying, remove the shrimp from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp.
  5. In a separate skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat.
  6. Slice open the French bread and place the bread face down into the skilled for 2 minutes, or until the bread is browned.
  7. To assemble the po’boy, cover both sides of the bread with mayo. Next on the bottom half, lay out the tomato slices followed by the pickles on top. Then, pile on the fried shrimp and add the shredded lettuce on top. Fold the top of the bread over and enjoy!
