With the holiday weekend coming up, I thought I would review some prepared foods and snack items.
This month Costco has their Cilantro-Lime Shrimp on sale for $1.50 off per container, no coupon required.(They take $1.50 off the sticker when you check out).
As my wife does not eat shrimp, I bought these as a treat for me. Overall, I was very pleased with them. I ate them "plain" right out of the container and I was impressed with the quality of the shrimp-they were flavorful and prepared properly, with the tails removed.
The cilantro-lime dressing on them was also well done. I like the tang and zest of citrus flavors and found these to be at about the right level. I also enjoyed the cilantro and other flavorings that made this more than just some shrimp soaked in lime juice.
As I said, I ate them plain, but I would think they would work well in some sort of salad. Also, for those that avoid carbs, serving these in romaine lettuce leaves would make for a flavorful low carb, low fat, high protein wrap.
I was definitely pleased with these and if there is ever another coupon, I will definitely buy them. I also might buy them every once in a while just to pamper myself.
