Cheddars Grilled Shrimp Alfredo
Cheddars is a casual chain restaurant that resembles Chili’s and Applebee’s in terms of price, menu offerings, and quality. It’s also one of the few chain restaurants that actually does scratch cooking, so it’s worth checking out if you want to get some decent food without breaking the bank.
This dish is a great option for those who enjoy shrimp pasta, and it can be made at home in under 20 minutes. The sauce is from scratch and uses a combination of four ounces of cream cheese, flour and milk to create an ultra creamy sauce that has a lot of garlic flavor. You can even add a bit of crushed red pepper flakes to make it spicy.
The sauce is based off of a classic Roman alfredo, but it derives most of its creaminess from butter and Parmesan, which makes it far better than the typical “alfredo” sauce you’ll find in American restaurants or in jars at your local grocery store. It’s not as rich or as decadent as Italian-style alfredo, but it still has plenty of flavor and it’s a quick and easy recipe to make.
It’s a very popular dish, and it’s not surprising. The shrimp are tender and seasoned well, and they’re served in a sauce inspired by Cheddar’s famous Painkiller cocktail (you can order it with a side of fries if you want more).
Another popular dish at Cheddar’s is their country fried chicken. You can order it with mashed potatoes and gravy, but it’s a heavy dish that isn’t going to leave you feeling light.
For the best experience, order this dish with a side of fries and plenty of gravy to cover it all up. The fried chicken is massive, and it’s a comfort food staple at the restaurant, so it’s probably worth grabbing it for the first time if you want to try something new and tasty.
The chicken fried steak is also a fan favorite, and it’s definitely one of the best things on the menu at Cheddar’s. This meal is pretty simple, but it’s cooked to perfection and seasoned so well that it’s hard not to fall in love with it.
Finally, the coconut shrimp is a big hit with patrons at Cheddar’s, and it’s not hard to see why. The shrimp are incredibly fresh and juicy, and the coconut sauce is one of the best I’ve ever had.
This dish is a lot like a classic grilled shrimp, but it’s not quite the same thing. It’s still creamy and delicious, but it doesn’t have the same savory flavor as traditional grilled shrimp, so it’s not the same as what you might find in a restaurant.
You can’t really go wrong with any of these dishes, but you might want to avoid some of them if you’re trying to stick to your diet. For example, the chicken alfredo at Cheddar’s is basically an unseasoned butter and cream sauce with limp grilled chicken on top, which doesn’t sound bad at all, but it’s not going to be worth ordering if you’re trying to stay healthy.
