Red Lobster boasts a menu full of lean protein from under the sea. However, the fish, shellfish and seafood here is often batter-dipped and covered in sauces. Luckily there are plenty of grilled and light options, if you know where to look.
Choose dishes from the Lighthouse Menu, which are touted as "smart meal choices" that are also delicious.
Opt for wood-grilled, broiled or steamed fish or seafood. The restaurant has a fresh fish list that changes daily. Choose the half portion of the fish or share your entree with a friend.
Go for the lobster or crab legs, but skip the butter. Dunk yours in cocktail sauce (unless you're watching your sodium intake) or squeeze on fresh lemon wedges.
The best sides include the side salad with light or fat-free dressing, rice pilaf, fresh broccoli or asparagus. Sauces such as pico de gallo, cocktail sauce or balsamic vinaigrette are also light choices.
Skip anything served in a garlic-butter sauce, fried, or covered in cheese sauce.
Start your meal with oysters or a shrimp cocktail.
Those cheddar-garlic biscuits have 150 calories and 8 g of fat each. Have just one, and skip the butter; they're already buttery and salty on their own.
