Jay is a huge fan of a po boy. You know, a fried seafood sandwich with some veg and a creamy-yet-spicy sauce. He tries them at lots of restaurants, but we were discussing how bread + mayo + fried doesn't make the most healthy sandwich you've ever had in your life.
We also discussed that we didn't really care.
I really wanted to make a po boy with scallops because I had some in the freezer (been buying the bags from Trader Joe's, love them more than life itself), and an open face sandwich just kind of felt right, you know? You could of course make this on a roll and eat it with your hands, but there's something about scallops that to me deserve utensils. And so, this sandwich that isn't really a sandwich (honestly, open faced just means bread on a plate) was born. You'll flip.
