One Great Dish: Crawfish Po’ Boy
Find it at Sea Salt Eatery in Minneapolis

It isn’t summer until I’m eating one of these massive sandwiches near Minnehaha Falls. The bread is a fat, crusty baguette, in proper NOLA po’ boy fashion, dressed with tartar sauce, tomato, lettuce, and a sea of crispy fried crawfish. Every bite is a thunderous crunch full of the sweet, sea-salty, meaty little crustaceans. A crawfish looks like a lobster hit with a miniaturizer ray, and that’s how they taste, too. The sandwich comes with a healthy dose of vinegary hot sauce, but a little more makes a proper po’ boy even better.
