I was able to get into the spirit of Mardi Gras this weekend with a little fried shrimp and a little dessert. A good friend of mine suggested we attempt to make what is definitely one of my favorite meals and somewhat hard to come by in my neck of the woods. We made our first batch of fried shrimp poboys. I had to call my dad (an expert on all things fried and shellfish related) to get a play by play list of how to prep and fry the shrimp. Below is a step by step documentation of the yummy dinner. It was so good, that we are still talking about it and are planning on adding a few oysters to the mix for the next round of sandwiches.
We peeled the shrimp, butterfly and take out the vein.
