New Year’s Resolution: Eat More Healthy Poboys

Healthy Poboy

You know what time it is.  Time to lighten things up.  Time to acknowledge our jeans are a little tighter after all the holiday treats.

Time for food makeovers.

I just got back from a New Years’ trip to New Orleans and had my first “authentic” shrimp poboy.  After 2 hours of waiting (1 hour in line to order and 1 hour waiting on the food–seriously), I was ready to dig in. Honestly?  I was kind of disappointed.  I’m not going to name the famous establishment in which I ate, but it definitely made me go “hmmm..”

Ahhh, the picture is beautiful, no? Unfortunately, the shrimp was bland and overly coated in dry cornmeal batter, there was waaay too much bread, and there was no remolaude sauce.  What?  Isn’t the sauce the whole point??


Well, I’m not eating that sort of thing anymore.  I’m cleaning things up.

The irony is, that this one was so much better.  Trust me guys.  I’m incapable of telling lies.

Po’boy 2.0: Shrimp Po’boy Pizza

This post is going to look like a lot of words.  Don’t let that deter you. Here’s some incentive to keep reading—breaded shrimp, tangy/spicy sauce, melty cheese.  Seriously, what could be more awesome?

This pizza was, of course, inspired by the shrimp po’boy sandwich, but it takes it to a new level.  It’s a Poboy 2.0, if you will. Ok, I’m just gonna get to it, because I can sense that you are drooling.
