Popeyes offers a spicy twist on their fan-favorite fried shrimp with the introduction of new bite-sized “Twisty” Wicked Shrimp.
New Wicked Shrimp feature shrimp marinated in a blend signature Louisiana-style herbs and spices consisting of salt, pepper, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, bay leaf, and sriracha, fried up in a breading that’s dusted with a southern-style crispy coating for extra crunch.
In addition to the new Wicked Shrimp, Popeyes is also introducing new Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce to pair with the brand’s seafood.
New Wicked Shrimp are available as part of a combo featuring 14 pieces of Wicked Shrimp, plus one regular side, a biscuit and new Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce for $5. A surf and turf option is also available.
YouTube reviewer Peep This Out! picked up a Wicked Shrimp combo at his local Popeyes in Southern California for 5 bucks. You can check out Ian’s review below for all the spicy – or not so spicy – details:
Wicked Shrimp can be found at participating Popeyes locations nationwide for a limited time.
