Lent Friendly Dining: New Sustainable Shrimp Dishes at Rubio’s Coastal Grill


Along with their famous Original Fish taco, Rubio’s is one of few fast casual restaurants to offer a wide selection of grilled seafood tacos, burritos and bowls for readers who are looking for alternatives to red meat and poultry during the 40-day Lenten period.

In addition to tried-and-true favorites, Rubio’s has also two brand new shrimp dishes to the menu. Featuring sustainable shrimp and a chef-crafted spicy chili aioli sauce, the brand new Panko Crusted Shrimp Two Taco Plate and Burrito!

I had the opportunity to try the Burrito and it is one of my new favorites from Rubio’s! 

Rubio’s Panko-Crusted Crispy Shrimp dishes feature sustainable shrimp crusted with panko-bread crumbs complemented by Rubio’s chef-crafted chile aioli sauce, creating the most satisfying combination of sweet and spicy flavors and crispy texture in every bite. The Panko-Crusted Crispy Shrimp Two Taco Plate features crispy shrimp placed atop warm stone-ground corn tortillas topped with chile aioli sauce, salsa verde, crunchy fresh cabbage, and cilantro and onion mix, and is served with no-fried™ pinto beans and sea-salted tortilla chips. The Panko-Crusted Crispy Shrimp Burrito wraps the crispy shrimp, chile aioli sauce, salsa verde, citrus rice, cabbage, and cilantro and onion mix in a toasted flour tortilla.
