Popeyes Launches New Wicked Shrimp


Popeyes is kicking up the heat with the debut of the new Twisty Wicked Shrimp.

Popeyes’ new Spicy Wicked Shrimp features the chain’s signature shrimp marinated in a blend of Louisiana-style herbs and spices that includes salt, pepper, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, bay leaf, and sriracha. The shrimp is then battered and breaded with the brand’s Southern-style crispy coating before being fried up for maximum crunch.

The chain is also offering a new Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce to pair with your favorite seafood items.

You can get the new menu item as part of a $5 Wicked Shrimp Combo that includes 14 pieces of Wicked Shrimp, a regular side, and a biscuit, plus a side of the new Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce for dipping. There’s also a $6 Wicked Shrimp Combo option that includes 14 pieces of Wicked Shrimp, one regular side, a biscuit, a drink, and Smoky Garlic Tartar Sauce.

According to Popeyes’ website, each combo contains between 262 and 625 calories.

You can find Wicked Shrimp at participating Popeyes restaurants nationwide for a limited time.
