With Lent fast approaching, many quick-service spots are starting to gear up for the season with a variety of new and returning seafood options.
It looks like Popeyes is going the route of something new, as we’ve gotten word that a new Cajun Flounder Snadiwch has been spotted in the USA.
Texas-based @the_undead_foodie1 posted a photo of the find on Instagram. Based on the menu shot they located, the fish sandwich appears to be selling for $4.49.
This appears to be confirmed by Instagram duo @mnmtwinz, who are based on the East Coast. They also shared photos of the new Cajun Flounder Sandwich, along with a new basket of Crispy Cajun Shrimp.
According to @mnmtwinz, the Flounder Sandwich is a cajun-bread filet of flounder, tartar sauce, and pickles on a brioche bun. It appears to be attempting to emulating the viral success of the original Popeyes Chicken Sandwich. The Instagram duo noted that they liked the fish sandwich slightly more than the shrimp, although both were “bangers.”
With the wide spread of this flounder sandwich and shrimp, these seem to be items geared up for a nationwide Lenten release, and The Fast Food Post seems to confirm as much in a story about the new seafood items.
Foodbeast has reached out to Popeyes to confirm if that’s the case, and will follow up once we know more.
