EnLIGHTened Shrimp and Arugula Pita Tacos - Healthy Choices for the Calorie Conscious at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse
Versatile and flavorful, shrimp pack a serious punch of both flavor and nutrition, making them an ideal protein for our EnLIGHTened Entrees® Menu. Did you know that shrimp is lower in fat content than lean ground beef and even skinless chicken breast? It's also rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants for heart and brain health.
That's why our EnLIGHTened Shrimp and Arugula Pita Tacos are a delicious and healthy option. Lean protein and bright, clean vegetables are nestled in a lower-calorie pita for a distinct and healthful twist on the classic seafood taco. We broil the shrimp to develop a flavorful sear and pleasing texture. Next, we top them with diced tomatoes, peppery arugula, parmesan cheese and a cilantro lime vinaigrette. It's all served inside a chargrilled pita with a side of bistro grains-or substitute your favorite side, like one of our house salads. Inspired by our Southern California roots, this exciting take on the seafood taco comes in at just 830 calories.

That's why our EnLIGHTened menu is defined instead by the things we put in: lean proteins, fresh veggies, whole grains and superfoods. Each dish is composed around healthy ingredients to taste as good as they are good for you.
