CAJUN GRILLED SHRIMP! Now that we have you’re attention, let’s talk about the new menu item Islands Fresh Mex Grill recently released.

The new Cajun grilled shrimp from Islands is a fresh, grilled shrimp seasoned with a chipotle spice. According to Islands owner, Lucas Jones, the chipotle gives the shrimp “a little bit of a kick but it’s got a great flavor.”

This is only the second seafood option Islands has ever had. The first being tilapia. Jones said they felt like adding another seafood item to their staple menu was a good choice and fit in well with the theme and vibe of the restaurant.

The shrimp can be ordered on any current menu item.

“Tacos, taco salads, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas,” Jones said. “You can put it on any of the menu items that we have.”

They even made a new sauce to go along with the shrimp. The sauce is a cilantro lime sauces and aside from it complimenting the shrimp nicely, Jones said it really goes well with anything.

“I actually put it on everything when I make my meals here because it really goes good with everything,” Jones said.

The new addition to the menu is a big deal for Islands. They don’t add new items very often because their current menu has always worked for them and its one of the things their most known for. But Jones said they have gotten positive feedback from the community so far about the new Cajun grilled shrimp. So he says it’s here to stay.

Some other exciting Islands news is that they are opening up a new location in the fall. The new location is in Leland in the Waterford shopping center. More info to come on that. For updates, check out their Facebook page here.
