The history of the po’boy is the very definition of soul food. Soul food is a term for leftover items that have been repurposed into a hearty meal. The Po’boy was invented from food workers taking leftover meal scraps and putting it between french bread.
If you don’t know my favorite type of food is Creole cooking… give me all the New Orleans style food my tummy can handle! It’s my absolute favorite place in the entire world because there is no other place like it.
This BBQ Shrimp Recipe is one of the easiest meals I have ever made. I am all for independent eating during the week and this is definitely one of those meals that you can leave on the stove and let people eat at their leisure.
It’s great with anything! Grits, Rice, Bread, Potatoes… Any Starch! All Starch! Have it your way and I promise that I won’t judge you.
As long as I can have a plate.
