Shrimp Po Boy

Shrimp Po boy’s are a revelation. Growing up in Indiana and Wisconsin, this just isn’t a dish you come across often, if at all. Recent work trips to New Orleans for Sean has brought this delicious Louisiana favorite into our lives.

The Shrimp itself is obviously the star of this dish, and when cooked right, and spicy, the way the locals eat it – it is unbeatable. But what really makes or breaks a Po Boy is the bread. French bread toasted properly can’t be beat in this instance. After a couple of attempts we feel we have perfectly replicated the amazingness that is a New Orleans Finest Shrimp Po Boy.
