Po Boy

This particular idea uses raw shrimp.

Dredge shrimp in eggs, roll in corn meal and fry.

Cut a roll (sandwhich size)
Add Shrimp, Vinegarette, lettuce and tomato.

Hot sauce can be subbed for the Vinegarette or served on the side for dipping.

Hey, my friend.....a 'dressed' po'boy doesn't actually use vinegar or viniagrette dressing. A traditional po'boy uses garlic bread and then mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and pickle chips, along with the meat/seafood of choice.
Leave the hot sauce in the bottle for shaking right on the sandwich.

Not sure if you could call your delicious sandwich a po'boy...

I had a shrimp po"boy dressed when we were in Nawlins back in '92 and it was one of hte best sandwiches I've ever had (next to the muffaletta we had there as well). Makes me want to go back but not sure if the places we ate will still be there after Katrina.

I've been back twice since Katrina...and most places are still operating. If you are wondering, you can check at NOLA.com for a list of restaurants, etc..

No I dont think this is a true Po Boy, but its an interpretation I had of one, I kinda just posted this to remind myself at a later date. Mayo is quite fattening so Im trying to think of a healthier substitute, good call on the garlic bread tho.

The best Po' Boy in the universe is the Florida Cracker Shrimp Po' Boy from the Florida Cracker Cafe in St. Augustine, Fl... breaded and fried shrimp, lettuce, tomato, onion, melted provolone and remoulade sauce.... Out of this world.

Nice! I beg my parents to take a trip to St Augustine when I visit them just for that! They live about 1 1/2 hours away. It's a nice drive up A1A.

I have to admit that my favorite Po' Boy is similar to what Vera describes. I use good crusty Italian bread (with some of the interior pulled out), homemade tartar sauce (mayo, minced cornichon pickles, some hot pepper sauce, & fresh lemon juice), shredded lettuce or a baby lettuce mix, & homemade fried oysters. I only use fresh tomatoes if it's tomato season, & add enough cornichons to the mayo that I don't need extra pickles.

Anyone remember those funky hotdog buns that Howard Johnson's used to serve their hotdogs on?....and their clam sandwiches????? THOSE would make a great po' boy - grilled with some garlic butter on the outside then stuffed with delicious fried shrimp OR oysters!!!!!!!!!!!!

When you get that figured out let me know - it just has to taste as good though!
