Couldn’t-Get-Lobster Shrimp Mac ‘n Cheese

Sometimes, things just don’t go as planned. Sometimes, you just gotta roll with it and adjust and make it work. So this mac ‘n cheese was supposed to have lobster and I couldn’t get my hands on tails, so, here we are with shrimp mac ‘n cheese. But not just any shrimp. The Argentinian shrimp from Trader Joe’s. It’s sweet and meaty and very lobster-y.

The key to a baller mac ‘n cheese is 100% the cheese. Using good quality white cheddar and gouda gives the flavor a little tang and a lot of creaminess. And if you’re on a diet, just avert your eyes. There’s nothing light about this recipe and I mean, if you’re going to go for mac ‘n cheese, let’s just really go for it, right?

How to Make Shrimp Po Boys Sandwiches with Tomato Chutney

I hope you are all ready to have to make these shrimp po boys on repeat! Seriously, they were such. a. hit. My husband doesn’t like when I put “salad” on a sandwich – ya know, lettuce, tomato, sometimes onion, the stuff that makes them taste really good. But this sandwich, he couldn’t wait until I was done photographing to try, ate it with the “salad” on it, and asked for them the next day. So get your note pad ready, write down the ingredients for and make these shrimp po boy sandwiches with tomato chutney!

Now, in a traditional po boy, you’d find sliced tomato, lettuce and remoulade sauce. Since it’s only Februrary, I was feeling like slices of tomato would likely be super grainy and not very exciting. I am so happy I decided to make a tomato chutney for this. It really gave the sandwich something extra. You can bet you’ll be seeing this chutney creeping in here and there – already dreaming about it on avo toast with a fried egg, or a panini, or a BLTC – bacon, lettuce, tomato chutney.
