With Mardi Gras behind us, the Lenten season has arrived. This 40-day period of fasting impacts many across south Louisiana and requires a little more consideration when it comes to dining plans in the early weeks of spring. Each Friday during Lent the Friday Fast calls for abstaining from eating meat. This may alter your regular lunch or dinner routine as the weekend approaches. However, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a hand-crafted, farm-to-table meal at one of your favorite restaurants.
The menu and chefs at BRQ Seafood and Barbeque provide a great variety of seafood options, perfect for Fridays during lent, as well as any other day during the week, and any other time during the year. The same attention to detail, fresh procurement sources, and quality that has made BRQ an award-winning destination for barbeque can be found in each and every seafood dish. Here is a closer look at seafood selection at BRQ.
Shrimp and Crab Sensation Salad
If you’re in the mood for something lighter, the shrimp and crab sensation salad is the perfect option. Along with mixed greens, tomato, avocado, and parmesan; the fresh crabmeat and shrimp are great as a meal or a starter.
This favorite fresh from the gulf is always a good choice. Combined with maque choux (a traditional southern Louisiana dish consisting of corn, green bell pepper, and onion) crawfish and lemon butter, this fulfilling dish always hit the spot.
A popular fish choice gets a new twist. With a pineapple habanero glaze and brussel sprouts, the BBQ salmon at BRQ is a fresh, satisfying option during Lent and year-round.
A staple on any menu, fried shrimp and catfish plates always hit the spot. Whether you opt for all shrimp, all catfish, or go half and half, along with hand-cut fries, this platter will change how you look at fried seafood.
While these items are everyday favorites at BRQ, the Lenten season also features some specials, ranging from appetizers to entrees.
This featured appetizer is made of Louisiana meuniere butter sauce and topped with crab claws.
A New Orleans institution, this Lenten special at BRQ offers four jumbo shrimp, parmesan whipped potatoes, and nola butter sauce.
Blackened Drum Napoleon
This entrée combines blackened gulf fish topped with crawfish etouffee, set atop parmesan whipped potatoes and corn maque choux.
