“Last year, Red Lobster reported $11 million in operating losses following its flubbed ‘Ultimate Endless Shrimp’ deal, which backfired when it reeled in too many customers after the limited-time promo became a permanent menu fixture last June. The restaurant chain later reported $12.5 million in losses in the fourth quarter of 2023.”

    That goes for all fish and seafood. Unless you caught it yourself, or personally know who did, it’s frozen.

    Blind taste tests have shown most people can’t tell the difference. Of the few who can, most prefer the frozen. Probably because it’s what they’re used to. “Fresh Seafood” is a scam

      I have personally done a blind taste test just for fun with several different types of fish that my family caught and the two of us that were doing it both couldn’t tell for shit what was frozen and what wasn’t. Anecdotal for sure but I thought for sure I’d be able to tell easily.
