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!
Kirkland Signature Shrimp Tray with Cocktail Sauce & Lemon
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.
Costco used to have a shrimp ceviche that was AMAZING. We beg you Costco, bring it back!! Till then we’ll take the shrimp cocktail 🙂 Pro Tip: We spotted an eerily similar shrimp ceviche at Sam’s Club recently…we haven’t tried that one yet, but while we’re talking shrimp just throwing it out there…if you’ve tried that please LET ME KNOW HOW IT WAS!
