We enjoy Red Lobster so much that we love to recreate some of our favorite menus at home.

Keep in mind that none of our recipes are exact replicas, but are inspired by the originals.

We try to use less breading and make substitutions for high calorie and saturated fat ingredients where possible.

This makes it possible to enjoy these traditionally rich recipes, made lighter, without having to worry too much about over indulging.

We even add our own twists to a recipe now and then, pair a dish with another sauce for instance, that we feel adds to the excitement.

The result is always a super flavorful, highly satisfying menu or dish that makes for a delightful and memorable meal at home.
