Red Lobster Endless Shrimp 2012

Red Lobster has been doing endless shrimp once a year for a month or two during the months of August to October.

This year, it started recently... $15 (higher in some places).

There are shrimps that they always have year round... which is part of the endless shrimp special as well. These are popcorn shrimp, garlic shrimp scampi, fried shrimp, coconut shrimp, and shrimp linguini alfredo.

But... they also add 2 specials, which changes every year as part of their endless shrimp special. These are teriyaki grilled shrimp and parmesan shrimp.

Your first place will be with your first two choices. They will then serve you with single serving of whatever choices you make later on.



Any of you get it yet?

The shrimps are farm raise have antibiotics in them so it is not good to eat too many of them. I know Red Lobster does not use wild shrimps as they cost too much money.

I don't blame you. I am dying for shrimps but the wild one cost $13 or more a lb. I used to buy the farm raise one and the last time I got some they smelled so bad when I opened the bag , I almost vomit! I return them . I had never been to Red Lobster.

They are wild, not farm raised, better tasting, and I like to support my local shrimpers.

Most restaurants in my area make it known that they serve only locally caught wild shrimp.

She said and meant locally caught wild shrimp vs wild caught away from her area.

"According to Rich Jeffers, a spokesman for Red Lobster, the casual-dining seafood chain gets very little of its shrimp from the gulf—or any ocean for that matter. Instead, it grows "farm-raised" shrimp in ponds throughout South America and Asia (Jeffers mentioned Thailand specifically), and at any given moment, the company has enough shrimp to meet the demand of all 700-plus of its locations worldwide for at least six months."

This is an example of how our restaurants let consumers know what kind of shrimp they serve:

"Friends Don't Let Friends Eat Imported Shrimp

Gilligan's is committed to supporting Local Shrimpers by serving 100% DOMESTIC WILD-CAUGHT SHRIMP in all of our locations. One of our primary goals is to serve our customers the best tasting and freshest shrimp possible. We will not serve imported shrimp.

We hope that you will sit back and enjoy, in our opinion, the best shrimp around. LOCAL SHRIMP."

At Seabrook, Tx. the boats bring in fresh caught shrimp from the Gulf.
This is 40 -45 minutes from downtown Houston and close to NASA. Latest cost is
25\30 count $3.97 per pound and these same shrimp at the food store in Houston would run close to $5 per pound.

Buying wholesale or at the docks is the best price. I'm lazy though, and I like the way the restaurants prepare the shrimp (peeled, and with heads off).

Same here if I could.

Sometime, my family want to eat at Red Lobster so I have no choice, however at least, I don't pay meal with my own money.

There are some local seafood restaurants that got wild shrimp from Gulf of Mexico.

Listen I am not the one having hard time understanding what she meant! I am saying farm raise shrimps are from a farm and are not caught. That does made them cheaper to buy and why some restaurants use them instead of wild shrimps.

understandable but I refuse to "bend over" when it's a poor quality.

USA brought most shrimp from China which is more cheap than organic shrimp farmer (more expensive than caught here at US's coast) here in west Texas.

Yeah the shrimps are from China and Taiwan when I shop. I live on the East coast and can get fresh claims but I am not sure if I still like them. I shop at Market Basket and the one I go have the most disgusting smelling fish department. People call it Market Bucket .

Free Range Farm Raised Shrimps? Is that possible? I mean they can be raised in a farm but as wild shrimps.

I rather shell out more money to support the US economy directly by supporting establishments that does business with the local farmers/shrimpers/etc. Its all about keeping the money in the united states and supporting ones neighbors. I rather go and enjoy food thats directly from US once a month than go out every week and support other countries.
