I love seafood and it is no surprise that Red Lobster is one of my favorite restaurants. Their specials are fantastic and you can truly taste the freshness of their fish and the quality of their ingredients.
This time of year is one of my favorites (can you believe that its almost February!?) because you can get 30 shrimp for $11.99!! Choose from classics like hand-battered, scampi and shrimp alfredo or try something new like their mango-jalepano or their parmesan-crunch shrimp! Pick any two and pair it with a salad and unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits for just $11.99! How amazing is that?!
Last weekend I went into my local Red Lobster with my family and boy did we have a great time. Dexter loves shrimp so he had the grilled shrimp skewer lunch, Oliver shared some of my 30 shrimp and Jason, of course, ordered a 1 1/4 pound lobster. Getting him to order anything else would be a crime against humanity. He is from New Hampshire and he is a lobster lover.
I know that I love the scampi and hand-battered shrimp so I thought I would try the shrimp alfredo and mango jalepano shrimp. Whoa were they tasty and super flavorful. I was surprised that the mango-jalepano wasn't spicy but they were so yummy! They were served over rice and I had a caesar salad without croutons. The alfredo shrimp were creamy, filling and garlicky. I paired my dinner with a Bahama Mama made with Captain Morgan and Meyers Dark rum--just what I needed to help get rid of my winter blahs.
The service was impeccable but I come to expect that from Red Lobster because, honestly, their seafood experts are knowledgeable, friendly and they always do whatever it takes to make every trip to Red Lobster memorable!
Hurry in, you have until February 10th to get in on the 30 Shrimp of Awesome at Red Lobster!!
