Red Lobster executives have a message for seafood lovers: they know you think their shrimp are skimpy, and they're doing something about it.
The seafood chain is pumping up the size of its shrimp in nearly 70 percent of lunch and dinner entrees containing the ingredient. It's a nod to customers' requests after combing through responses from more than 10,000 customers.
Consumer feedback ranged from "it's just time for a change" to "the size of your shrimp in the scampi is so small, it is almost a tease."
"Our guests shared they wanted Shrimp Scampi and Shrimp Skewers to be bigger, so we increased the size," said Salli Setta, president of Red Lobster, in a statement. "And, they wanted them to be better, so we changed our preparation to improve taste and give the shrimp a better bite."
