Shrimp Po' Boy Sandwich Recipe

Updated on October 4, 2012
5 stars from 1 rating of Shrimp Po' Boy Sandwich

I don't know about you but I love Po' Boy Sandwiches, and the Shrimp Po' Boy Sandwich is the top sandwich on my list. This recipe came about from my love for this sandwich and not being able to buy one where I was living at the time in Matador Texas. The Shrimp Po' Boy is easy to make and I'm sure if you are a sandwich lover like myself it will become one of your go to sandwiches.
