Five shrimp preparations will be on offer this year, including two new ones. Shrimp Linguini Alfredo, Garlic Shrimp Scampi, and Hand-Breaded Shrimp are the returning favorites, and the new offerings are Crunchy Fiesta Shrimp and Sesame-Ginger Grilled Shrimp. Here are the official descriptions for each of those dishes:

New! Crunchy Fiesta Shrimp: crispy tortilla-crusted shrimp, topped with a three-cheese sauce and fresh, house-made pico de gallo.

New! Sesame-Ginger Grilled Shrimp: grilled shrimp, drizzled with a sweet and savory soy-ginger sauce and topped with a sesame seasoning.

Shrimp Linguini Alfredo: tender shrimp in Red Lobster’s famous creamy garlic Parmesan sauce, served over linguini.

Garlic Shrimp Scampi: hand-crafted garlic shrimp scampi, oven-broiled in a garlic butter sauce.

Hand-Breaded Shrimp: hand-breaded shrimp fried to a golden brown and served with Red Lobster’s signature cocktail sauce.

A new cocktail is also being unveiled for the promotion: Tiki Passion Punch, which is made with Sailor Jerry spiced rum, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, and Sprite.

If you need a refresher on how the whole Endless Shrimp thing works, you start by ordering two items from the lineup, and additional items are ordered one at a time until you’ve had your fill. It comes with a salad, side dish, and, of course, unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits, which you should also make sure to order to go.


As always, the promotion is open-ended, and will be offered while supplies last. Before taking the plunge, however, make sure you study up on our five tips for conquering Endless Shrimp.
