Popeyes has just announced the launch of their Zatarain's-spiced Butterfly Shrimp, a dish that marks the first collaborative project between Popeye's and the New Orleans seasoning company.

The butterfly shrimp comes seasoned in Zatarain's cornmeal-based breading, and comes in an 8-piece meal on a bed of cajun fries and biscuit for $4.99. The lemon garlic dipping sauce is a creamy, tart lemon garlic blend that includes parsley and red pepper flakes.
