Oyster Po' Boy with Sweet Onion Relish and Chipotle AioliWe’ve made it! I’ll admit to you now that about half way through I thought, “who was the fool who thought up this idea?” I love sandwiches as much as you do, but a six part Sandwich Series? At midway that seemed a bit excessive. I’m glad you stuck with me though, I think there’s been some kick ass sandwiches along the way. My two personal favourites have been this oyster po’ boy and the Prosciutto, Blue Cheese and Candied Pecan Panini.

I have a bit of an obsession with oyster po’ boy sandwiches. Can you fault me? 

Oyster Po' Boy with Sweet Onion Relish and Chipotle AioliMy absolute favourite in my search limited to the City of Vancouver, is the oyster po’boy from Go Fish, just outside of Granville Island. The oysters are crunchy, fresh with sea water and smothered in sweet onions, chipotle creme and Go Fish’s homemade tartar sauce. It is a messy,juice running down your arm kind of sandwich. It is the kind of sandwich that you finish then want more. Just one more bite, no, wait, one more sandwich, please and thank you very much.

If you are a local to Vancouver and have never had this sandwich, stop whatever it is you are doing and head to Go Fish. If you are not from around here, you’re going to love this recipe. You’re welcome, in advance :)

Thanks Ali!

I have a bit of a habit of collecting little spoons and dishes where ever I go. I find them too cute to pass up. This one came from Costa Rica :)
