The Red Lobster restaurant chain in North America has brought back the Crabfest promotion. This summer the limited-time event is featuring the largest variety of crab dishes ever menued, along with a species of wild-caught Alaska crab not previously offered.
The menu features Alaska Bairdi crab, as well as other crab-based dishes. For example, the Wild-Caught Crab Legs Dinner offers customers the choice of one of three different crab leg selections: Snow Crab, King Crab or Alaska Bairdi Crab.
For those who can’t decide on or simply don’t want just one type to eat, an order of the Crab Lover’s Dream option will bring wild-caught Snow Crab Legs, Split King Crab Legs and the restaurant’s signature Crab Linguini Alfredo, all served up on one plate. And for shellfish lovers, Red Lobster’s new Wild-Caught Snow Crab & Seafood Bake combines snow crab legs with shrimp, sea scallops, mussels and tomatoes in a garlic and white wine broth.
In addition, wild-caught sockeye and coho salmon, sourced from the waters of Bristol Bay, Sandy Point and Prince William Sound in Alaska, have been added to complement the Crabfest menu. These types of salmon are available for a limited time to correspond with their respective seasons. They can be paired with Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and Crab-Topped Salmon, or simply grilled.
Consumers will see the Alaska Seafood logo on Red Lobster’s menu next to the wild-caught Alaska crab and salmon options. The logo affirms the chain’s ongoing support of sustainable fisheries and its commitment to protecting the state’s valuable seafood resource.
