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.
