A Po' Boy is a traditional submarine sandwich from Louisiana. It almost always consists of a meat, usually roast meat or fried seafood, served on baguette-like New Orleans French bread, known for its crisp crust yet fluffy center. The name "po-boy" is, of course, a shortened version of "poor boy." The name stems from the fact that a po-boy used to be a very inexpensive way to get a very solid meal. Po' boys are made at home, sold pre-packaged in convenience stores, available at deli counters and make up a sizable percentage of the menu options at most neighborhood restaurants. Shrimp Po' boys can come dressed, such as this recipe is or just butter on the bread or with butter and ketchup, all made you way.
