Kirkland Signature Shrimp Cocktail at Costco

Ready-to-Serve Shrimp Cocktail at Costco Includes Cocktail Sauce and Fresh Lemon Wedges

Shrimp cocktail at Costco is a super easy and classic appetizer – especially this time of year as it’s a popular party food. Or you can just eat your shrimp cocktail as a meal (we might be guilty of that sometimes). The fully cooked peeled shrimp come with a zesty cocktail sauce (which has a little kick!) and lemon wedges – shrimp cocktail is always a crowd pleaser and easy way to step up your holiday or party starters. Pair it with King Crab Legs for a seafood extravaganza!

Why We Like the Costco Shrimp Cocktail – Review

Pop the top off, open the cocktail sauce, give it a squeeze of the fresh lemon (included) and voila! Shrimp cocktail! It’s good, it’s easy, it’s a lean protein, it makes a fancy appetizer, and it’s already cooked and ready to eat.


The portion size is good for us, as seafood goes bad quickly (especially shellfish) so you need to make sure you can eat this much – but over 2 days we snack on it, toss some on a salad, sometimes we saute it into a pasta dish, and we can easily go through it and make a few meals from it.

  1. When buying the shrimp cocktail I found the the container not to have a safety strip before opening just snap open.

  2. Does the nutrition information (panel) you provided include nutrition details for the cocktail sauce as well or only for the shrimp???? Thx!

    1. I’ve never seen it for sale at Costco, but that’s a great question! I’ll let you know if I find out…I wish I knew too πŸ™‚
