Near the end of summer I made a fried green tomato and shrimp remoulade po boy that I enjoyed immensely. While I was eating it, thinking about the fried green tomatoes reminded me of pickled green tomatoes and I figured that a pickled green tomato shrimp po boy with remoulade sauce would also be an amazing flavour combination. The idea of this new sandwich was the perfect excuse to make some pickled green tomatoes right away and then to make another po boy when they were ready! The only problem was that the green tomatoes needed several months to pickle so I would have to wait. Several months later I was still anticipating the pickled green tomato and shrimp po boy with remoulade sauce and I could finally try it. The wait was well worth it as the crisp, tart and sour pickled green tomatoes went perfectly with the spicy succulent shrimp and luscious remoulade sauce ! Now I have a bunch of pickled green tomatoes to enjoy! I will have a hard time trying to not just make this sandwich over and over again and to try something new.
