Semi-homemade Fried Calamari Po' boy

Some of the best meals are created simply from converting left-overs into something new.

Transforming last night's dinner into today's lunch can be the quickest way to put lunch on the table while at the same time flexing your creativity muscle in the kitchen.

This is indeed, how I came up with today's lunch, which was a delicious Fried Calamari Po'boy.

Po'boy's are traditional sandwiches from Louisiana, which consist of meat, usually fried seafood (shrimp, crab, oysters, etc) stuffed in french bread (baguette).

Equipped with left-over fried calamari from last night, 1/3 of a loaf of french bread, and some homemade coleslaw (coleslaw mix or finely chopped green salad mix, fat-free mayo, white vinegar, salt and black pepper); I was ready to go on culinary vacation in my mind.

All you have to do is;

Heat the french bread and calamari in the microwave for about 1 minute
Cut open the french bread
Pile on the fried calamari
Top with the homemade coleslaw

Then, sit back, imagine yourself in the French Quarter of New Orleans and bite into this yummy sandwich.
