Try this popular shrimp dish at to French Quarter Fest.

Food lovers heading to French Quarter Fest can always dig into new dishes among their iconic favorites. We got a sneak peek of a Hawaiian-inspired option from one vendor, Flamingo A-Go-Go, with a clever name — Shrimp A-Go-Go.

Culinary director Ralph Pausina thinks the new option will play well with festival crowds. Pausina says they chose the Shrimp A-Go-Go dish because it’s already so popular with customers.

“Shrimp overall is just a great selling item. This is such a unique dish, but it’s not scary,” Pausina said.

The dish tosses fried shrimp in a roasted red pepper aioli and tops them with macadamia nuts,¬†green onions, grilled pineapple and corn salad.¬†Pausina says the dish combines an explosion of flavors and textures — crunchy, salty, sweet and a little spice. The Warehouse District restaurant serves the item on its menu as an appetizer.

In addition to the Shrimp A-Go-Go, priced at $7 at the fest, the restaurant will bring some of their other popular dishes, like garlic parmesan fries.

Flamingo A-Go-Go’s festival location is at the Riverfront-Kohlmeyer Lawn.
