Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen announces its latest offer, new Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp, bringing the flavors of a storied Southern side dish, hushpuppies, to the main course with Butterfly Shrimp. Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp is a Popeyes twist on a Southern classic.

Traditional hushpuppies are made from cornmeal batter, rolled in a ball and fried up in kitchens all over the South. Popeyes Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp takes eight pieces of its incredible Butterfly Shrimp, marinated in authentic Louisiana seasonings, breaded in a light, sweet Hushpuppy cornmeal crust and fries them up in Popeyes kitchens all over the country.

“Popeyes guests love our Louisiana-inspired dishes, that’s why we continue to interpret beloved favorites in new ways. As a leader in culinary innovation, we are always looking to bring new products to our guests that have not been seen before,” says Hector A. Muñoz, chief marketing officer, U.S., for Popeyes. “Today, we’ve brought hushpuppies and butterfly shrimp together as the star of the meal with our new Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp.”

Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp, served with Cajun Fries, a Buttermilk Biscuit, and Cajun Cocktail Dipping Sauce, offers guests a complete southern-style meal for only $4.99.

Popeyes Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp is available in participating restaurants through July 26, 2015.
