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 highlights of this sandwich. Easy to make so give it a try.

We absolutely love shrimp po'boys and were excited to try this recipe. It was as delicious as we expected. The remoulade sauce is tangy with just the right amount of spice. Adding fried green tomatoes to the po'boy gives the sandwich a little crunch and tartness. This po'boy brings all the Cajun flavors of New Orleans into your kitchen.
