BBQ Shrimp Po' Boys for 4

+ Free Shipping

These Sandwiches are EXCLUSIVE to Goldbelly – you cant even get ’em at the store

Fresh Louisana Gulf Shrimp sauteed in a special New Orleans BBQ sauce filled with cajun spices. Then loaded up on toasted flaky New Orleans French Bread with extra sauce for dipping

Whether you know them as po’ boys, po-boys, or poor boys, the Poor Boy sandwich is as essential to New Orleans as Mardi Gras. Invented during the 1929 Streetcar Strike, the people of New Orlean’s gathered together to feed 1,800 hungry men by creating hearty sandwiches. Often, proprietors would yell “Here comes another poor boy!” when a worker would approach looking for a meal. In solidarity, Parkway added the “Poor Boy” to their menu that year and fed union members and conductors poor boys for free. These Poor Boys are a piece of historical and culinary wonder you can’t miss.

To Serve
Poorboy Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Slice French Bread lengthwise and place to the side
  • Drain shrimp in a small colander for 5 minutes – Do Not run water on them
  • In a medium-sized saucepan pour the BBQ Shrimp Sauce and heat on medium, stirring often, until hot (should not simmer)
  • When the sauce is hot, take it off the heat
  • In a large sauce pan with plenty of surface area set to medium heat
  • Melt 1 Tbsp of butter in the pan then drip the shrimp in, keeping them moving by mixing gently
  • Cut the lemon in half and squeeze all the juice into the pan as well as the lemon
  • Turn the heat up to high
  • You will notice plenty of liquid coming out of the shrimp. That is good flavor so leave in pan gently stirring on 3 minutes or until shrimp become firm
  • Set heat back to medium then pour the BBQ shrimp sauce into the large saucepan with the shrimp
  • Mix gently for 1 minute then turn off the heat (NOTE: If the sauce looks as though it has not thickened enough, remove the shrimp and continue reducing the sauce)
  • Building the Poorboy: Place sliced bread on a small sheet pan. With a slotted spoon load up each bottom slice with the same amount of shrimp
  • Spoon a little extra sauce over the top of the shrimp and place on the top part of the place
  • Place in the oven for 3 minutes or until the bread is crispy
  • Cut each Poorboy in half and use the extra sauce for dipping!
  • Enjoy!

This is the first year our daughter and son in law couldn’t get down for Christmas. Their first stop out of NO airport is at Parkway to get a poor boy. And since he is difficult to buy for I figured he would really love it. He did.
