New Orleans turns out one of the world's most exuberant sandwiches and calls it a poor boy: always joking down there, always delicious. An arm's length of crusty French bread piled high with Cajun-battered fried shrimp, lettuce, mayo, and salty pickles can, however, add up to your day's worth of calories and fat, along with today's and tomorrow's salt.
Delightfully crunchy and deliciously messy, this lighter po'boy delivers classic satisfaction. Food is sacred in New Orleans, but this is not heresy; it's a loving, lighter homage. We'll show you how we did it.
