Disappearin’ Darin’ Po’ Boy

Got a hankerin’ only a Po’Boy can fix? These 20 minute sammies are raging with cajun flavor and couldn’t be easier to assemble. We recommend piling these bad boys high with lots and lots of fiery remoulade. Word to the wise: make sure you keep an eye on ‘em if you’re interested in seconds—they tend to disappear fast.

5 minPrep


  • 1 8oz pouch Daring Cajun Pieces, thawed
  • 2 hoagie rolls
  • 2 tsp vegan butter, melted
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (approx.) vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ cup shredded iceberg lettuce


  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Split each hoagie roll down the middle, stopping just before slicing all the way through to keep each roll in one piece. Brush each roll all over with melted vegan butter and place on a baking sheet in the oven for 5 to 6 minutes, or until warmed through and just beginning to turn golden. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, set a large, heavy-bottom skillet (cast iron or similar) with ¼” oil over medium-high heat. While the skillet preheats, combine the Cajun Pieces with all-purpose flour in a large bowl until evenly coated. Discard any excess flour.

Step 3

When the oil is hot and the surface begins to shimmer, add the dredged Daring pieces to the skillet in an even layer. Shallow fry the Daring for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until crisped and golden-brown. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate or wire rack to drain and sprinkle all over with kosher salt.

Step 4

While the Daring fries, prepare the remoulade sauce by whisking together all the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl.

Step 5

To serve, slather the bottom of each roll with remoulade. Top with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and a generous portion of the fried Cajun Daring pieces. Drizzle with more remoulade, and devour immediately.
