Popeyes(R) Louisiana Kitchen’s famous Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box is back as Seafood Mardi Gras returns to Popeyes during February and March. Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box is loaded with eight premium butterfly shrimp marinated in Popeyes classic Louisiana seasonings, breaded in a crispy crust, and fried up fresh. It’s a complete meal that includes Cajun fries, a biscuit and dipping sauce for just $4.99.

“While other restaurants only dabble in seafood, at Popeyes, seafood is in our DNA. We’re throwing open the kitchen doors with premium, Louisiana-style seafood offers,” said Hector A. Munoz, Popeyes Chief Marketing Officer-U.S. “Our guests know they can trust Popeyes to bring our culinary heritage and expertise to the table every time and we have prepared a Seafood Mardi Gras celebration with something for everyone!”

Butterfly Shrimp Tackle Box is only the beginning of Seafood Mardi Gras as these Louisiana-inspired seafood offerings are also a part of the celebration.
