Panda Express, America’s favorite Chinese kitchen, introduces Five Flavor Shrimp, a limited-time entree, to its better-for-you WokSmart™ menu. Five Flavor Shrimp is the latest evidence of Panda Express’ focus on bringing simply delicious and healthful meals to guests through quality ingredients skillfully prepared by Panda chefs.

As Americans increasingly seek nutritional dishes with bold flavor combinations, the Panda Express culinary team took inspiration from Shanghainese cuisine and blended rich, savory and pungent ingredients to create a multi-dimensional sauce that pairs perfectly with the dish’s large, succulent shrimp, fresh cut green beans, red bell peppers and onions.

“We’ve captured a delicious blend of five tastes to produce a new menu item that pleasantly surprises the palate,” said Chef Jimmy Wang, director of Culinary Innovation at Panda Express. “As the home of American Chinese cuisine, we are constantly working to introduce our guests to inventive flavor combinations that are rooted in Chinese origins and shaped by American originality. I’m very proud of what the team has created with Five Flavor Shrimp.”

Five Flavor Shrimp is packed with 14 grams of protein and only 210 calories per serving. Guests can order the dish online at, through Panda’s mobile app or by visiting any of Panda’s 1,900 locations from now through August 1.

Panda Express is also known for delivering guests delicious American Chinese cuisine in its famous Panda Bowls. Paired perfectly with Five Flavor Shrimp, the Panda Bowl’s single-serving size provides guests the opportunity to indulge while ensuring their meal is still balanced and nutritious. In 2016, more than 75 million Panda Bowls were sold in the U.S.
