There seems to be a national holiday for just about everything these days, and a whole lot of them revolve around food. But when I heard that tomorrow is National Shrimp Day I got so excited! A national holiday centered on my all time favorite seafood? Score!
So today I am sharing some of my favorite places to get some amazing shrimp meals (and deals) around the Orlando area. I’m not quite sure where I’ll be headed tomorrow to celebrate, but I can guarantee you that I will be enjoying some shrimp!
I recently got to check out the items on Marlow’s Tavern’s new spring/summer menu and I can honestly say that the Firecracker Shrimp was my favorite. Szechuan tempura shrimp with red & poblano peppers and a cracklin spicy sauce. I’m a great big wuss when it comes to spice and these shrimp had just the right amount!
Paddlefish will be offering BOGO free, South of the Border Shrimp all day long! Their South of the Border seafood boil includes peel & eat shrimp with tajin, Served with Plant City farmer’s market corn, new potatoes and cornbread. Yum yum!
Thru May 15 you can get a 2 course lunch and drink for only $14 at Reel Fish Coastal. Three of the available entrees include shrimp! I’d suggest the shrimp po’boy because they have some of the most amazing fried shrimp. It has just the right amount of breading and tons of flavor.
Bonefish Grill is going big for National Shrimp Day (May 10) with the first-ever, mouth-watering menu built around its signature Bang Bang Shrimp®, featuring the restaurant’s own exclusive recipe of crispy shrimp tossed in a deliciously creamy, spicy sauce. The Bang Bang Bliss menu, curated by renowned Chef Justin Fields, will be available at all locations May 7-10.
