Air fryer shrimp Po Boys recipe. A new take on a classic Po Boy sandwich! These fried shrimp Po Boys are loaded with fried shrimp and tomatoes on fluffy, soft sourdough bread.

What are the benefits of using an air fryer?

Air fryers are becoming popular. They are the perfect tool for people who want to make healthy food choices but don’t like to spend too much time in the kitchen. They are an excellent alternative to traditional frying because they use very little oil and create less of a mess. This type of fryer uses hot air instead of oil, so it is also good for people who want to cook without heating up their home with extra heat.

The air fryer is an efficient way to quickly cook foods that would otherwise need deep frying, but without all of the added calories and fat that comes with it. Because the air fryers require less oil than traditional deep fryers, they can be used in places where there is limited access to electricity or too much dust in the air.

Why is it called a Po Boy sandwich?

Many people have a misconception that ‘Po’ is an acronym for ‘Pork on a Bun,’ but it actually stands for ‘Poor boy.’ The term poor boy was first used in the 1800s to refer to a sandwich made with bread, pork, and gravy.

This is what makes the sandwich unique – it was called a poor boy at its inception because it was working-class food.
