May 29, 2018 – Red Lobster is inviting guests to enjoy the flavors of summer with the return of Lobster & Shrimp Summerfest. The limited-time event features four seasonally-inspired lobster and shrimp combinations.
During the event, guests are invited to discover new ways to enjoy two favorite seafood proteins – lobster and shrimp – with new preparations like roasted on a cedar plank or tossed with linguini and spiralized zucchini, fresh tomatoes and basil, as well as craveable summertime flavors like coconut beurre blanc and pineapple relish.
“This menu embraces everything there is to love about summer,” said Chef Dustin Hilinski, Executive Chef and Director of Culinary at Red Lobster. “We’ve paired fresh, vibrant flavors – like coconut, pineapple and lemon – with perfectly prepared lobster and shrimp to give our guests the ultimate summertime seafood dining experience.”
This year’s Lobster & Shrimp Summerfest lineup at Red Lobster includes:
- NEW! Cedar-Plank Seafood Bake: Jumbo shrimp and petite Maine lobster tails with garlic and Red Lobster’s signature Chesapeake seasoning, roasted on a cedar plank with smoked sausage. Served with fresh corn and potato wedges.
- NEW! Caribbean Lobster and Shrimp: Grilled rock lobster tail topped with a coconut beurre blanc and pineapple relish, paired with Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp. Served with rice and choice of side.
- Lobster and Shrimp Overboard™: A grilled Maine lobster tail, garlic-grilled jumbo shrimp skewer, langostino lobster-and-shrimp zoodle pasta and hand-battered jumbo shrimp. Served with rice and choice of side.
- NEW! Langostino Lobster-and-Shrimp Zoodle Pasta: Langostino lobster and shrimp tossed in a lemon-and-roasted-garlic sauce with linguini and spiralized zucchini, fresh tomatoes and basil.
Red Lobster is also adding a new option to the recently debuted Tasting Plates menu – NEW! Tuna Poke. Guests who visit during Lobster & Shrimp Summerfest will be among the first to try the new Hawaiian-inspired dish, which features sushi-grade ahi tuna in a soy-sesame marinade, topped with green onions and served with tortilla chips.
