Red Lobster is set to make history by launching Korean BBQ Shrimp in the middle of its annual Endless Shrimp promotion. Not is this the first time the chain has extended the Endless Shrimp menu halfway through the promotion, but it also represents the chain's attempt to offer more globally inspired dishes.
As of Monday, September 26th, Red Lobster will begin offering Korean BBQ shrimp as part of its ongoing Endless Shrimp promotion. The new dish was created by the chain's executive chef Dustin Hilinski, who was inspired by the flavors of Korean barbecue. To convey these flavors, Hilinski used ingredients such as fermented gochujang paste, sesame oil, ginger and brown sugar. The result is a slightly sweet seafood dish, balanced by a touch of heat.
