Shrimp Lovers are Tempted with Five Jumbo Shrimp Dishes

ORLANDO, Fla. (January 11, 2006) — Shrimp lovers will be able to mix and match their favorite Jumbo Shrimp preparations, all on one plate.

For a limited time, seafood lovers can delight in their choice of two of the following – Jumbo Shrimp Scampi, Jumbo Parrot Bay Coconut Shrimp, Jumbo Crunch-Fried Shrimp, Garlic Grilled Jumbo Shrimp Skewer or a delicious new preparation, Lobster, Crab & Seafood Stuffed Shrimp.  This new preparation consists of butterflied jumbo shrimp stuffed with lobster, crab and seafood topped with Monterey Jack cheese and a creamy lobster sauce.

“This promotion lets guests combine their two favorite Jumbo Shrimp varieties instead choosing just one.  Also, we have added a new Lobster, Crab & Seafood Stuffed Shrimp that’s huge and has a terrific, bold taste,” said Red Lobster President Kim Lopdrup.  “This is the best Jumbo Shrimp promotion we have ever offered.”
