Popeyes is always testing out new ways to serve up their traditional shrimp, and this time – they’ve gone spicy. The restaurant recently launched the Twisty Wicked Shrimp and Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce as their latest menu additions.
If you frequent Popeyes, you’ll notice the shrimp look an awful lot like the original ones of the menu. The Twisty Wicked Shrimp take the original popcorn shrimp and beloved Louisiana flavor and kick it up a notch. You can expect the crispy breading to have flavors of salt and pepper, garlic, cayenne pepper, onion, bay leaf, and sriracha, according to Chew Boom. The Smoky Garlic Tartar dipping sauce is new, too and comes alongside every order of the spicy shrimp.
For just five bucks, customers can order the Spicy Wicked Shrimp in a combo meal that includes 14 pieces of shrimp, a side of your choice, a biscuit, and the Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce. As with Popeyes other seafood options, you can the spicy shrimp in a order a surf and turf dish, as well.
And just like all good things, the Spicy Wicked Shrimp and Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce will only be around for a limited time before they replace it with something else. Select locations have also been testing the BBQ Cheddar Chicken Sandwich – did you get a chance to try it?
