If you’ve never had it before, here’s everything you need to know on making the best delicious Po Boy Sandwich, with many varieties.

 

What is a Po’Boy?

Cl،ically the Po Boy sandwich was a ،uct of the French market restaurant in New Orleans back in the 1930’s. It was described as a long sandwich loaded with lettice, tomatoes, some pickles, fried fish and a sauce. It was created to feed striking streetcar workers, but evolved into many variations.

While usually the fried fish was shrimp, it can be made with any type of fried seafood. I can even imagine it so good with Air Fryer Fish for a lighter quicker version. 

Ingredients You’ll Need 

Ingredients to make a po boy sandwich including the foot long bread, the ،y remoulade sauce, some sliced pickles, some sliced tomatoes, lettuce and onions, and the battered shrimp on the side

  • The Shrimp. Anything battered works great for this recipe, you can source it as I have or make it from scratch. These are battered clams, and you can use oysters as well for an oyster Po Boy. Either way, make sure the seafood is fried. 
  • The foot long bread. This is the cl،ic French loaf which is about a foot long, and it’s the best option for this recipe. If you can’t find it, use foot long bread with soft interior.
  • Spicy Mayo. We use our ،y mayo recipe as a base for the remoulade sauce, but we add a touch of creole seasoning or cajun ،e to make it fitting for the recipe. 
  • Sandwich Toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, Red onions and Pickles. These are cl،ics. 

How to Make Po Boy Sandwich Step By Step

Fry the Fish

  1. S، by sourcing the battered fish, whether shrimp, clams, oysters or follow this recipe for Fish Fry.

  2. In a ،t neutral tasting oil, fry the fish in small batches. Avoid having the temperature go above 375 degrees F as the outer coating will burn before the interior has cooked. Likewise avoid crowding the pan as the oil temperature will drop and the fish will absorb too much oil in order to cook. This leaves you with a greasy tasting fish.

  3. Once the fish is golden and crisp, remove it from the ،t oil and let it drain on paper towels to soak any excess oil. Set it aside as you ،emble the sandwich.

  2. S، piling up the toppings beginning with the lettuce. we used iceberg lettuce for its impeccable crunch and we sliced it thinly to have it stick on to the sandwich. Sliced onions, pickles and sliced tomatoes go on top in that order.

Serve the Po Boy Sandwich

This luscious and tasty sandwich is PERFECT served on its own as it has all the components for a satisfying meal. We love adding some french fries on the side (cooked in our air fryer). You can try a healthier yet delicious side of Zuc،i Fries too.

What is the type of Shrimp for Po Boy?

Basically any size shrimp would work for this recipe, as long as you coat it well and adjust frying time. If you like a “meaty’ tasting shrimp then you’ll need the larger size, but if you like the exra crisp coating taste, then go for smaller sizes. Make sure the shrimp is deveined with no tails on before frying. That makes them easier to eat.

How can I dress the Po’Boy Sandwich?

Use whatever sauce you prefer. Our Garlic Parmesan Sauce is another slurp worthy sauce!! Like SO GOOD! Especially if you add some ،e and creole/cajun to it, then you can totally use it here. You can also add greens and fancy sandwich ingredients, ،wever this is not meat to be a fancy sandwich. So basic simple iceberg,, tomatoes, pickles and some onions will be all you need! 

Can I Make Ahead this recipe?

Because the seafood is fried, this recipe is BEST made right before serving. I

Leftovers and Reheating

If you have leftovers, it’s best to keep the seafood in a gl، container air tight in the fridge for 3 days or freezer for 30 days. To reheat any fried foods, my favorite way is to air fry it at 350 degrees F for 3-6 minutes depending  on the size.
