Fast casual innovator offers sustainably sourced, freshly sautéed shrimp in a tangy lime sauce for guests to enjoy at participating locations throughout summer

SAN DIEGO (June 23, 2022)— Leading fast-casual Mexican restaurant QDOBA announced the introduction of Citrus Lime Shrimp, a new limited time protein now available at participating QDOBA locations across the U.S. and Canada. QDOBA’s new Citrus Lime Shrimp features sustainably sourced and BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) rated shrimp, all freshly sautéed in-house in a tangy citrus lime sauce. Seafood lovers, rejoice!

“After a successful market test, we learned that our guests craved a lighter protein alternative they could feel good about eating,” said QDOBA’s Chief Marketing Officer Karin Silk. “Our Citrus Lime Shrimp delivers all the vibrant, fresh flavors you would expect from our menu while giving guests the freedom to customize their creations or indulge in our protein-packed Surf & Turf entrée. Because why choose only one when you can have double the protein AND double the flavor!”

QDOBA guests can create their own flavor masterpiece with new Citrus Lime Shrimp or choose from two new chef-crafted Signature Eats:

• Surf & Turf Burrito or Bowl—Freshly sautéed Citrus Lime Shrimp and Grilled Steak are paired with hand-crafted guacamole (at no extra charge), smoky chile crema, and a sprinkle of cotija cheese served over a bowl of cilantro lime rice and black beans or wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

• Citrus Lime Shrimp Burrito or Bowl (online exclusive)—Freshly sautéed Citrus Lime Shrimp, smoky chile crema, pico de gallo, cilantro lime rice, black beans, and a sprinkle of cotija cheese served in a bowl or wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.
