Red Lobster Is Making GIANT Holiday Seafood Trays

Red Lobster is making a splash into the holiday platter game by making their own version of loaded seafood trays.

The seafood chain has two different platters you can order on their website. One of them is a Chilled Seafood Holiday Platter, with 18 cocktail shrimp, 8 split Maine Lobster tails, and a half pound of jumbo lump crab meat tossed in a lemon vinaigrette. They’re all served with cocktail sauce for dipping, although we also see some pretty epic sandwiches or other feasts that could be made using this seafood smorgasbord.

If fried seafood is more your thing, there’s also a Shrimp Lover’s Holiday Platter featuring three kinds of fried shrimp. Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp, Walt’s Favorite Shrimp, and Crispy Shrimp come together with cocktail sauce, Dragon sauce, and a piña colada sauce on this tray. Altogether, there’s 4 dozen fried shrimp on this massive offering.

For those looking to splash out a little more cash and impress, the Chilled Seafood Holiday Platter is the more expensive of the two (since there’s 8 lobster tails on it). Prices will vary locally, but in Southern California, the tray costs $71. The fried shrimp variety comes in at $32 in the same region.

Both are now available to order on Red Lobster’s website.

What California’s Largest Fish Market Looks Like On Its Busiest Day

The San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant is one of the most highly trafficked restaurant locations on the West Coast, seeing more than 20,000 visitors on weekends.

If you’ve ever been there, you already know that timing is everything. With only a few freeway entrances leading into the Port of Los Angeles, the West Coast’s largest fish market becomes overrun with traffic, creating long lines and an ocean of hungry people.

Still, the Kings of Fish, the family of principal owners of San Pedro’s legendary seafood market, are prepared to deal with the hoards of seafood hungry crowds that are willing to wait hours in line for a table.

Well, they would be if they were actually in the state.

With three members of the Kings Of Fish family more than 3,000 miles away from the sunny skies of San Pedro, the San Pedro Fish Market is tested on one of its busiest weekends, and actually needing to close the doors in order to accommodate the massive demand for shrimp trays and giant Coronas.

While Tommy “The Boss” Amalfitano, is trying to quell historically large crowds, his counterparts are “working” at the Boston Seafood Expo, trying to market a frozen seafood product.

But, by the looks of it, the Three Stooges of San Pedro can barely read the expo map to find their product booth and seem to be struggling after a long night in Boston.

While Tommy Sr. is over his head in clientele, he hopes the boys in Boston won’t let him down. But, being the veteran that he is, Tommy Sr. doesn’t believe anything until he sees it.  And on the busiest day at San Pedro Fish Market, all he sees are long lines — with his Kings of Fish nowhere in sight.
