Just in time for the holiday season, Red Lobster is introducing its Holiday Seafood Celebration, a limited-time event featuring a variety of new special dishes, new seasonal cocktails and a new seasonal dessert that guests will want to save room for at the end of the meal.

Red Lobster's new Wild-Caught Lobster-and-Shrimp Trio features a wood-grilled Maine lobster tail topped with Norway lobster mac-and-cheese, paired with a garlic-grilled red shrimp skewer and panko-crusted red shrimp with Red Lobster's classic cocktail sauce.

The Holiday Seafood Celebration features a mouth-watering dish for every seafood lover, with several exciting new options to choose from. Those who crave variety will love the new Grand Seafood Feast, featuring four different types and preparations of seafood—a Maine lobster tail with a white wine and butter sauce, a crab hollandaise-topped lump crab cake, a garlic-grilled red shrimp skewer and Red Lobster's signature hand-crafted shrimp scampi. The new Wild-Caught Lobster-and-Shrimp Trio is also a great choice, featuring a wood-grilled Maine lobster tail topped with Norway lobster mac-and-cheese, paired with a garlic-grilled red shrimp skewer and panko-crusted red shrimp with Red Lobster's classic cocktail sauce. And, surf-and-turf lovers can savor the new Crab-Oscar Surf and Turf, with the choice of wood-grilled sirloin or New York Strip topped with a mushroom demi-glace and paired with a crab hollandaise-topped lump crab cake.

"This time of year sparks an appetite to indulge, treat yourself, and treat the ones you love—and there's no better way of doing so than with a seafood feast," says Dustin Hilinski, executive chef and director, Culinary at Red Lobster. "During the Holiday Seafood Celebration, we're giving guests rich and flavorful options to enjoy in a variety of ways."

Peppermint, a flavor often associated with the holiday season, is also featured in both a brand-new dessert and a cocktail during this year's Holiday Seafood Celebration. The new Peppermint Brownie Sundae features a warm brownie served with vanilla ice cream, topped with a chocolate peppermint sauce, whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy. And, the new Peppermint Winter Frost combines Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur, Crème de Cacao and decadent peppermint, topped with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy. Guests seeking something a bit sweeter will enjoy the New! Blackberry Amaretto Sour with freshly muddled blackberries, DISARONNO and house sour mix.
