Shrimp Po’boys | Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



Do you think the only way you can get a good po’boy is if you take a trip to New Orleans? Not true! You can make a Big Easy-worthy po’boy right at home, and it’s much faster and easier than you think. Really.

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
The hardest part is getting the oil temperature right, which I’ll show you how to do in the video. If you’re intimidated by the frying, don’t be. Watch my video, and you’ll see how simple (and fast!) it is. I’ll tell you exactly how to get your oil at the right temperature so the shrimp gets all golden without absorbing a lot of oil. I’ll also show you the best time to season the shrimp for the ultimate flavor. As they say in New Orleans, “Yeah, you rite!”
