I have always enjoyed seafood po'boys from New Orleans growing up on the Gulf Coast. You can enjoy one too right from your home - no travel to NOLA. My husband and oldest son thoroughly enjoyed and devoured my po'boys. Cajun fried shrimp and green tomatoes are the highlight of this sandwich. Easy to make so give it a try.
