Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Breaded Panko Shrimp. I like shrimp more than Sean but he was agreeable to trying these out. We decided to have the shrimp last Friday along with the Costco Synear Soup Dumplings and the Costco Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Salad. Kind of a random dinner!

Looking back, I’ve done quite a few Costco shrimp reviews! The SoKusa Shrimp Chips, P.S.I’s Grande Gourmet Breaded Coconut Shrimp, SATO Asian Fare Shrimp Wontons, Authentic Asia Shrimp Wonton Soup and Kirkland Signature Tail On Cooked Shrimp.

Location in Store

This product can be found in the freezer section near the other frozen seafood. The item number is 1359154.

Taste

I baked the Costco panko breaded shrimp in the oven and the shrimp came out golden brown and crispy! The shrimp are a decent size, flavorful and not at all fishy.

The panko breading isn’t strongly flavored with any herbs and is seasoned modestly so you can pair the Costco breaded shrimp with various sauces and dips or add them to salad or make tacos with them. Unfortunately the shrimp doesn’t come with any sauce and I forgot to buy some so we had these alone. They were still good!

The panko shrimp taste a little bland without any sauce so I recommend picking up some dipping sauce for the shrimp to enhance the flavor and overall enjoyment! My tastebuds think the Costco panko breaded shrimp are pretty delicious, if you’re a shrimp fan.

Cost

I paid $21.99 Canadian for 1.13 kg box of Costco Kirkland Signature Panko Breaded Shrimp. There’s 40 to 50 shrimp in the box. This seems a little expensive to me but I figure most seafood is on the expensive side.

Convenience

.To prepare the shrimp I used the conventional oven method and my shrimp turned out great! To cook the shrimp in your conventional oven preheat your oven to 400 degrees farenheit, arrange your shrimp in a single layer on a non-stick cookie sheet or parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Then cook them for about 16 minutes turning over at the 10 minute mark. After they’re cooked let them stand for two minutes before serving. The box recommends placing them on paper towels before serving them but I skipped this part and they were fine.

The panko shrimp from Costco need to be kept in the freezer and the best before date is 13 months from the date we purchased them.

Breaded panko shrimp make an awesome party appetizer or for when you’re having guests over. They’re also great in a salad and can be used to make shrimp tacos.

Four panko breaded shrimp is 330 calories, 20 grams of fat, 24 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, 13 grams of protein and 570 mg of sodium. I can easily eat way more than four of the Costco shrimp so that’s quite a bit of calories, fat and sodium! At least they have a decent amount of protein.

Ingredients

The first ingredient is shrimp, which is great! I don’t love the soybean oil added or the sugar but what can ya do? These are not gluten-free and contain soy as well.

  1. Can you please do a review of a new Xmas item at Costco in the bakery section: rum balls?

    If you have some European friends who are used to traditional rum balls, they would be a great asset in sharing their opinions as I find many North Americans, especially millennials can’t appreciate traditional “old world” deserts.

  2. I saw these at the Costco in okotoks and would love to see a review of them. They’re usually very delicious but fiddly things to make yourself
