Popeyes has just added a new shrimp entree to their menu, specifically for biscuit lovers. Wait, does that sound right? Apparently, the new item combines the best parts of both foods and joins them together in a deep fryer.
The new item, Buttermilk Biscuit Butterfly Shrimp, is made with, you guessed it, butterfly shrimp marinated in Louisiana seasonings and soaked in a buttermilk biscuit batter. The shrimp, dripping with batter, are deep-fried until golden brown.
A combo of eight Butterfly Shrimp is available for $4.99 and comes with regular fries, a biscuit and a Blackened Tartar dipping sauce (its original tartar sauce with blackening seasonings added).
Popeyes has also added a new Spiced Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Pie. It consists of a crispy, golden-brown crust filled with creamy, spiced, pumpkin cream cheese.
