~ Succulent Shrimp Po'Boy ~

We've been in a shrimpy kind of mood and this sandwich is always awesome. We had these a few days ago and just now finding time to post. It's so easy to make, that you'll be enjoying it in no time. Don't pass up the sauce, it goes well with the crispy, flavorful shrimp.
