After a lot of turkey, ham, and other holiday food, I was having a real craving for a local coastal favorite in the south, so I decided to make a video of how to make an awesome Shrimp Oyster Po' Boy, just like the one's that are made daily in my region and elsewhere. The shrimp and oysters really take on a restuarant quality by cooking as I show in this video, and the pickle chips really go good as a side to these. Hope you enjoy and try them out :)
