Buffalo Shrimp Po’Boys

Buffalo Shrimp po boy 3

It is safe to say that most southern-style restaurants have a po’boy sandwich of some sort on their menu. If you aren’t familiar with the sandwich, usually they are a sandwich topped with fried shrimp, oysters, or some other kind of meat. They are usually topped with sandwich fixings such as: Lettuce, tomato, and a mayo, or other sauce (there are many variations of toppings).

Shrimp Po’ Boys are my favorite version of the sandwich. I prefer to have shrimp (and other seafood) not fried. For our po’boys, we’ve made Buffalo Shrimp Po’Boys!

The sautéed shrimp gets smothered in a sweet and spicy honey buffalo sauce, then placed over a bed of shredded lettuce and tomato, all on top of a hoagie bun. Drizzle on a little ranch dressing, and it brings the sandwich over the top, delicious!
