Red Lobster is one of our favorite restaurants to dine at, but as I mentioned before, we tend to limit our dinning out as doing so is more of a splurge. Red Lobster has, however, introduced a new selection of 15 budget friendly meals that make dining out more affordable. These new entrées, referred to as the Maine Stays are offered under $15… every day. The Maine Stays menu offers everything from seafood to chicken, like Tilapia with Roasted Vegetables and Wood-Grilled Chicken with Portobello Wine Sauce.
Blue Cheese Sirloin
A 7-oz. peppercorn-seasoned sirloin is cooked over our wood-fire grill and topped with a creamy blue cheese sauce. Served over mashed potatoes with choice of accompaniment.
Tilapia with Lemon Garlic Butter (1/2 Portion)
A half portion of Today’s Fresh tilapia can be prepared on our wood-fire grill, oven-broiled or blackened. Served with lemon garlic butter.
Our shrimp are delicately wrapped in bacon, glazed with peach-bourbon BBQ sauce and topped with pico de gallo. Served over mashed potatoes with your choice of accompaniment.
I had the opportunity to try a Maine Stays meal and I ordered the Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp because it just sounded like all sorts of yummy. I ordered to go (it’s much easier these days), so of course my meal didn’t look as pretty as it would have arranged on a plate, but it tasted just as good! I LOVE shrimp and bacon… married together, they just werk. The peach-bourbon BBQ sauce was a delicious addition. It was less like BBQ
sauce and more like a sweet glaze.
I enjoyed my meal. ‘Twas a nice treat for my birthday (Dec. 3). With the new menu in effect, maybe we’ll visit Red Lobster more often.
