Fish Po'Boys

I first discovered a Po'Boy sandwich at a restaurant that I used to work at, they served a shrimp version and sometimes had a fish Po'Boy special.  I tried it one night and I was hooked, it was SO good.  I mean I guess you can't really go wrong with fried fish on a crunchy baguette with tarter sauce, right?  But I have never made one of these delicious sandwiches at home, and I was pretty excited to experiment with it.  The nice thing about making things yourself is that you can control the calories A LOT better.  I love the fact that cornmeal is used to bread this fish and I used very little oil in my skillet when frying these up.  I used fat free mayo for the tarter sauce and paired them with some fresh watermelon.  It was a light fresh meal, but still very filling.  Absolutely delicious!  You could do this sandwich with any kind of seafood and it would be delicious, give it a try.  ENJOY!
