Fried Shrimp Po' Boys on the Menu for Lent

Clock Restoration featured a fried shrimp po' boys for Fat Tuesday through the first Friday in Lent. It was so popular we decided to keep in on the menu for the rest of Lent.  We use our popular Liscios rolls that we use for our cheesesteaks, toast them and fill it with fried shrimp, lettuce, pickles, tomato and topped with remoulade aka remy sauce. 

So how did this delicious sandwich come up with its name. The speculation is at the time this sandwich was invented, a striking union was referred to as poor boys in the diner that invented the sandwich. The "Po boy" is derived from the southern accents often heard in the region. It is a sandwich originally from Louisiana. It almost always consists of meat, which is usually roast beef or some sort of fried seafood such as shrimpcrawfishfishoysters or crab. The meat is served on a New Orleans French baguette, known for its crispy crust and fluffy center.
