    To serve, split open the hoagie rolls and spread both sides with remoulade. Add 6-8 oysters to each roll and cover with a layer of lettuce. Serve with a squeeze of lemon. that looks so good and just makes me want to go to po boys pickles, not to make them. ?? where did you guys find good rolls? i understand that s the hardest part of getting a po boy right.
