What is a Po Boy?

A Po Boy sandwich is a sandwich that originated in the Fresh Quarter of New Orleans.  It is traditionally served on a French Baguette and can be filled with shrimp, oysters, or sausage.  It generally has Remoulade sauce.  Many Po Boy sandwiches you find in restaurants have fried shrimp.  But this steamed Cajun shrimp is so good. You won’t miss the fried, I promise.
