Red Lobster was founded in 1968 by entrepreneurs Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby. Originally billed as a "Harbor for Seafood Lovers", the first restaurant in Lakeland, Florida, was followed by several others throughout the southeast. In 1970, General Mills acquired Red Lobster as a five-unit company. With new backing, the chain expanded rapidly in the 1980s.




Crab Alfredo

Red Lobster Crab Alfredo
Copycat Recipe

1 pint half and half
1 stick unsalted butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 crab legs, Alaskan king

In a saucepan melt butter. When butter is melted add the cream cheese. When the cream cheese is softened add heavy cream and the Parmesan Cheese. Add Garlic Powder, and stir well. Simmer this for 15 - 20 minutes on low. You may wish to season with a little salt and pepper. Once again, a true person would not use the cream cheese, but it does help thicken the sauce up, without much difference to the taste, you can omit it, just be prepared to stay with the sauce a little longer to thicken it. Boil crab legs as you normally would in boiling water, crack open legs, lightly paper towel the meats so that you get the excess water off, and place the meats on top of the Alfredo sauce and pasta.
