Ingredients 

    1. 4 French loaves split horizontally (8 in long)
    2. 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    3. 1 tsp garlic powder
    4. 3 tsp kosher salt
    5. 2 tsp paprika
    6. 1/2 tsp black pepper
    7. 45 raw medium shrimp (2 lbs) peeled, deveined, and tail off
    8. 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    9. 1 cup cornmeal
    10. 1 cup buttermilk
    11. shredded iceberg lettuce
    12. sliced tomatoes
    13. canola/vegetable oil
    14. dill pickles for garnish
    15. 3 tbsp XXX Sauce

    Directions

    1. Mix salt, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together. Divide the spice mixture in half.
    2. Season the shrimp with the first half of the spice mixture.
    3. Mix the flour, cornmeal, and the second half of the spice mixture together.
    4. In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk and XXX Sauce.
    5. Dip the seasoned shrimp in the buttermilk, then coat the shrimp with the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. If you prefer a thicker coating, repeat this step.
    6. Chill the shrimp in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
    7. Pour the oil into a deep, wide pot with a depth of about 2 in. Heat the oil to 350° F.
    8. Working in batches, fry the shrimp until golden brown. This will take about 3-4 minutes per batch.
    9. Transfer the shrimp onto the paper towels to drain the excess oil.
    10. Build your sandwich on the French bread and layer it with Kimchi Mayo, sliced lettuce, tomato, and pickles. Finally, top off the sandwich with a pile of fried shrimp and extra Kimchi Mayo / XXX Sauce.
