7 of our favorite dishes from the current Red Lobster menu to taste

Red Lobster has been serving classic and varied seafood dishes to the masses for quite some time, but what are the best dishes they offer. Join us for 7 of our favorite dishes from the Red Lobster menu. Just be prepared to be attacked with mad envy, dear readers.

Red Lobster has certainly changed over the years. In fact, many restaurants have changed over time. And with the unfortunate spread of the pandemic, many restaurants have had to change to reach the customers who have made them who they are now, and Red Lobster is for everyone, and now you can order online. line at your convenience, which of course is epic news.

But what to order? This is perhaps the glaring question and the one you should be asking yourself. Online they offer a “New Menu” and it’s just as great as the previous one, trust me, but the classics are of course still available.

And what about a classic…the skeleton on which a legacy is built? Red Lobster’s legacy dates back to March 1968 and since then they have been feeding the masses in comfortable surroundings, in places that take the eater back to simpler times and restaurants that line the fishing towns of the East Coast perhaps. be – dishes of lobster, crab, shrimp and a plethora of other seafood delicacies.

But it is in their new menu that varied options can certainly be found and something to get excited about, dear readers.

So without wasting any more time, let’s go, shall we? Here are 7 of the best Red Lobster menu items you can have today.

7. Crispy Thai prawns

Talk about a new item that may sell! World cuisine has been sweeping across North America for decades. It makes sense that Red Lobster got into the game, doesn’t it? This one is sure to indulge any fan of a great shrimp dish, with an added twist. Sour and spicy… the secret ingredient to all things Thai… of course, with a little traditional sweetness added to the mix, you have a treat worth trying.

These prawns are battered and fried (I love the bran), and tossed in a sweet chili sauce worthy of any Thai restaurant this side of the Atlantic, and you can pair these babies with both sides of your choice. Enjoy your meal.

6. Tilapia and Scallops

So if your doctor has told you to avoid fried foods, a grilled option is definitely in order. This one won’t disappoint in the flavor department. Trust me. And it’s healthy… a succulent and juicy scallop skewer accompanies a nice piece of tilapia which, if well cooked, is flaky and delicious.

Perfect if accompanied by steamed vegetables and rice. Fish and rice go together like bread and butter. This one delivers for sure. The works are covered in Red Lobster’s famous garlic and herb sauce that I could eat from a full vat. Just give me a fresh baguette straight out of the oven and I’m good.

5. Kung Pao Noodles With Crispy Shrimp

Sticking with the new management, we just couldn’t leave this baby off the list. They also serve chicken dishes, as you’ll see below, added as an honorable mention if you like alongside a fish sandwich that deserves its place on this list, but this Asian classic with a twist of lobster rouge is the right way to go if you’re looking to sample some of their new menus. You’ll be praising their new management in a few bites, I think…especially if you go for this one.

4. Crispy cod sandwich

In Italian cultures, Baccala is salt cod…dried and stored in salt. It is sold like this and then to prepare it, it is soaked in water for days; then battered and fried. (There are of course other recipes, but this is the most common.) Often the dough is simply a sprinkling of flour. This dish is enjoyed all over the country of Italy and North America of course.

The reason I bring it up: This sandwich at Red Lobster tastes very similar to the Baccala that my family made when I was a kid. This takes me back to Christmas Eve dinners and simpler times, what good food should do, dear readers.

*As promised, the honorable mention in the sandwich category of Red Lobster’s new menu is the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. A great substitute if your friends dragged you to a seafood restaurant but you were really craving chicken.

3. Seafood stuffed mushrooms

The sad story here is that there are no more Red Lobster stores here in Montreal where I work and where I come from. Yes… start the aqueduct works. If I want to eat red lobster, which I often crave, I have to go to Ottawa, the capital of Canada.

Sadly, Red Lobster didn’t survive the fallout from the language wars here in Quebec that required all restaurants to have a French name…a horrible piece of our history that I’d love to forget, but I digress. Some think that the channel has failed in the city and in the provinces for other reasons, but the debate rages on, as sometimes does the language war.

Nationalists here tried Homard Plus (which translates to “Lobster Plus”), but the restaurant fell, as expected. It was definitely not Red Lobster. Regardless of Ottawa, I now go whenever the mood calls.

But my first time at Red Lobster was when I was a little boy…my parents took my sister and I for their birthday dinner, and it was these stuffed mushrooms, or rather a variation of them which I tasted first. I never looked back. I still remember how they tasted. It was the start of an epic meal that I will not forget either.

2. Jumbo Shrimp Signature Cocktail

It’s hard to make a list of just 7, but my editor Kimberley challenged me and I chose to accept the assignment, not wanting to disappoint her at all, so I must – absolutely must – place this item on the list; as simple as it is. Also, sometimes simplicity is better.

And what could be simpler than the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. As Chef Gordon Ramsay once said, “It’s boiled prawns dipped in ketchup!” Of course, that’s a phrase paraphrased from Hell’s Kitchen, and even as he knows, cocktail sauce has a bit more complex scope than just a ketchup base; this one delivers.

The combination; the simplicity; the freshness, all of this makes it a perfect starter.

1. The Ultimate Feast

Yes… it had to be on the list, and yes, it’s a classic. It’s right up there with The Admiral’s Feast which is also still on the Red Lobster menu. This one has it all and perhaps the best way to justify its placement on this list is to break down what’s on this platter of seafood heaven:

An absolutely succulent piece of Maritime lobster tail, snow crab legs; Red Lobster’s signature garlic shrimp and Walt’s favorite shrimp. Everything is accompanied by melted butter, lemon, cocktail sauce and side dish of your choice. As before, rice is primo here, especially drizzled with butter and some of those prawns.
