Shrimp Po Boy

A shrimp po boy is one of my favorite easy to make meals. It is a dish that is available at most New Orleans restaurants. All people have different variations to this great dish. The most popular recipe is the fried po boy. Others love the grilled or bbq shrimp recipe. It only depends on what your tastebuds desire. My favorite is of course the fried version. My grandmother had her own special recipe. It was the way she fried the shrimp that made it so delicious. The main ingredient is of course Louisiana Shrimp.
