Prawn Po Boy

Being back and forth between Ireland and America sometimes I forget some of the great food I come across while living here in the states. I have offered some US favorites in the past but have also missed out on a lot. Today I’d like to share one of my favorite shrimp (prawn) recipes that I have come across in my travels. It is simple and quick, plus can be made all under 30 minutes.
