Red Lobster offers multiple seafood dishes that are less than 1g of net carbs (e.g. (salmon, lobster, and crab legs). You can also create your own Signature Feast with seafood, sides, and dressings.

Seafood dishes make for an excellent zero-carb appetizer! But that’s true only if you mind the sides (baked potatoes, fries, biscuits)

Luckily for you, Red Lobster doesn’t just serve ‘clean’ seafood. But also has low-carb sides like steamed broccoli and salady greens to pair with.

And the best part is that you can mix n’ match different protein options with your choice of dressings and sides, thanks to their customizable Signature Feasts.

This is a quick and practical guide (with images) to all the keto-friendly options available at Red Lobster. So let’s begin!
