Dinner for two doesn’t have to break the bank even when it includes delicious seafood.  From now until May 26th Red Lobster has a special Seafood Dinner for Two menu that includes 2 dinners for only $25.  Last night my hubby and I went to Red Lobster to check it out.  We had hoped to make it a (rare) romantic, child-free meal but with no available sitter, we took our girls and we all had a great time.  On a side note~ The waitress must have thought I was a food nut or some kind of crazy for taking pictures of everything.  Oh the things I do for you, my readers! 😉menu for 2 menuOur meal began with unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits……YUM!  Hubby and I were then given a choice of a garden or Caesar side salad.  I splurged on a Caesar salad and hubby had the garden salad.  Both salads were fresh, crisp, and delicious.  We also chose to add a bowl of Lobster Bisque to our share for an additional fee.  It was so creamy and delicious that my daughter ended up having most of it!
We then had the choice of one of 4 appetizers to share or one of 3 desserts to finish our meal.  It was hard to choose between Mozzarella Cheesesticks, Golden Onion Rings, Spicy Buffalo Chicken Bites, and Lobster-Crab-and-Seafood-Stuffed Mushrooms but we chose the mushrooms.  They were covered in golden, bubbly cheese and were the perfect starter for us.  If you like desserts you can choose between Chocolate Wave Cake, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, or Key Lime Pie.  Or for only $4.99 extra, get both an appetizer and a dessert to lobster professional
For our main course we each had the choice of  Honey-Garlic Crispy Shrimp, Seafood Lover’s Linguini, Wood-Grilled Chicken with Portobello Wine Sauce, Wood-Grilled Pork Chop, Teriyaki Glazed Salmon with Pineapple Salsa, or Bar Harbor Salad with Chicken or Shrimp.  I chose the Honey-Garlic Crispy Shrimp (Hand-battered shrimp fried to a golden brown, drizzled with a honey-garlic glaze and topped with green onions. Served over cilantro rice tossed with broccoli) and my hubby chose the Seafood Lover’s Linguini (Tender shrimp, bay scallops, mussels, roasted tomatoes and green onions in a white wine and lemon-garlic sauce over linguini).  Hubby’s only recommendation is that he would have preferred a cream sauce with his linguini.  I absolutely LOVED my Honey-Garlic Crispy Shrimp.  The shrimp were golden and crispy with a wonderful honey-garlic sauce that I could have drank, it was so delish!   It was served with perfectly seasoned cilantro rice, red peppers, and broccoli.  It is the type of meal that I will be craving again in the future so I am sure we’ll be making another trip to Red Lobster soon.  We opted not to get dessert because it was getting late for our girls on a school night.  Next time I’m sure we’ll try one of the desserts on the Dinner for 2 or one of their other yummy offerings.  The Warm Chocolate Chip Lava Cookie is on my radar for sure!
As I mentioned, we brought our girls with us.  They loved the Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  There are plenty of choices for children on the children’s menu but my girls like to be different.

My older daughter choose the chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks appetizer for her dinner and my younger daughter chose the half portion of broiled salmon from the adult menu.  She LOVES salmon so she was happy that it was on the menu.  Her dinner came with a salad so she shared a Caesar salad with her sister.  My girls love croutons so they were in heaven.  When the salmon came out I was a little nervous that my daughter wouldn’t like it because it had seasoning on it but after one bite my fears were alleviated.  She gave her salmon an immediate thumbs up and proceeded to finish it all!

Of course a trip to Red Lobster isn’t complete until my girls check out the lobster tank!lobster pic

Gorton’s Seafood 20 at 200 or Less Product Review and Giveaway

Did you know that Gorton’s Seafood has 20 products at 200 calories or less per serving?  I love the Skillet Crisp Tilapia and the Grilled Shrimp.  The Skillet Crisp Tilapia is AMAZING and the Grilled Shrimp makes such a fast and easy addition to so many meals such as salads, pastas, and so much more.  Here are all 20 of the products that are 200 calories or less:
I was selected my Gorton’s to try out a few of their 20 products that are 200 or less calories per serving.  They sent me an apron, 2 oven mitts (how did they know my old pair recently ripped and I burned my hand?), a spatula, and 5 coupons for FREE products.  I went to Publix this past week to purchase some of the Gorton’s products and I was so excited because Publix was having a BOGO sale on Gorton’s products so I was able to purchase 10 packages instead of 5.  My younger daughter LOVES salmon so I bought several packages of the Simply Bake Salmon.  She loves salmon so much that she asks for it as a snack after school.  Crazy, right?  But I love that the Gorton’s Simply Bake Salmon comes in 2 individually sealed portions so I can just grab one for her after school and it is only 140 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 21 grams of protein.  Much healthier than so many other snacks but it also makes a great meal, too.

Our oven is broken and we haven’t gotten a new one yet so I love that I am able to make the Simply Bake Salmon in our toaster oven.  It takes about 25 minutes and because it cooks in it’s own sealed pouch there is no clean up.  The roasted garlic and butter flavor salmon has the perfect amount of flavor without being too overpowering.  I decided to serve the salmon just the way it came for my daughter because I wasn’t sure if she would eat it if I turned it into a recipe.

I also purchased the Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi and decided to turn it into shrimp scampi and brown rice.  I knew my daughter would love the garlic butter flavoring from the shrimp and I would be able to get her to eat some multi-grain brown rice if I mixed the garlic butter and shrimp with it.  Each shrimp came out of the bag surrounded by the garlic butter.  I started out putting all the shrimp on a plate (see picture above) but then decided to just make one serving to go with the rice.  One serving of garlic butter shrimp scampi (about 6 shrimp) is only 120 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 10 grams of protein.  Much lower than I would have thought with a garlic butter sauce!
One tip- Make sure to always read the directions carefully first.  I didn’t read the directions for the shrimp right the first time and I cooked them on a plate in the microwave with plastic wrap and the plastic wrap melted into the shrimp.  After I threw that batch away I read the directions and and realized that it said to cook the shrimp in a BOWL in the microwave with the plastic wrap, not on a plate.  And the package of plastic wrap said that if it came in contact with foods that were high in fat it might melt.  Too bad I didn’t read carefully the FIRST time.

The second batch of shrimp came out perfect and there was plenty of garlic butter sauce to mix into the rice.
I added some green beans to complete the meal and it was a hit!
Both the Simply Bake Salmon and the Garlic Butter Shrimp Scampi were easy to make even without having a working stove or oven.  I am looking forward to purchasing a new oven this week so I can try sauteing the shrimp on the stove top next time.  I would also like to get more creative with other recipes using the shrimp and the salmon when I have a working stove.
