Fried Shrimp Po’boy With Creole Remoulade Recipe
Fried Shrimp Po’boy With Creole Remoulade is an iconic New Orleans sandwich, filled with crispy fried shrimp served on buttered French bread. Yum!
When I go back home to New Orleans the first 2 things I get are a drive-through daiquiri and a fried shrimp Po’boy. I know I’m home and in heaven.
Ask anyone from New Orleans where to get the best Po’boy and you are sure to get a passionate response – because everyone has a favorite – mine is Acme Oyster House in the Quarter.
