Smoked or Grilled Prawn or Shrimp Subs with Cajun Mayo


  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • ½ tsp Basil
  • 1 pound fresh Prawns (Shrimp), peeled and deveined
  • 2 large Tomatoes, sliced
  • bunch of leaf Lettuce
  • 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ tblsp Sweet Relish
  • 4 Buns, sliced horizontally



  1. Make the Cajun seasoning by mixing together the paprika, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, thyme, oregano and basil. Set aside.
  2. Make the cajun mayo by mixing together the mayonnaise, relish and 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning.
  3. Set the Bradley Smoker to 106°C (225°F) using Wood Bisquettes of choice (Alder, Apple, and Pacific Blend work great).
  4. Toss the Prawns/Shrimp in the remaining Cajun Seasoning and place on a smoker rack and smoke until they turn pink. This can take 30-45 minutes, depending on their size.
  5. Assemble the Subs by spreading some of the cajun mayo in each bun and top with Prawns, tomatoes and lettuce.
  6. Serve and enjoy!


Note: The Prawns/Shrimp in this recipe can easily be grilled instead of being smoked.

Heat grill to high heat. Toss the Prawns/Shrimp in the Cajun seasoning. Place the shrimp on the grill grate and cook for about 3 minutes. Flip and cook another 3 minutes or until done.
