So I randomly decided to pick up some shrimp from Costco last time I was there! I’m trying to incorporate more seafood into my diet so today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Tail-On Cooked Shrimp. These are actually frozen and can be found in the freezer section!

I was pleasantly surprised by how fresh, plump, flavorful and tasty the Costco Kirkland Signature Tail-On Cooked Shrimp are! I sautéed them in a bit of butter and they tasted great! You could definitely eat these defrosted, plain with some seafood sauce or you can add them to pasta, salads or other dishes. These are seasoned with salt so they have a little bit of seasoning but these shrimp are versatile so you can eat them plain or add them to other dishes.


The 907 gram bag of shrimp cost $19.99 Canadian and has 31-40 shrimp in the bag


These are super convenient. You can defrost them in the fridge overnight or run them under some cold water to get them ready to eat. The best before date is about 6 months from the date I purchased the shrimp.


Seven shrimp is 80 calories, 0.2 grams of fat, 230 mg of sodium, zero grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of sugar and 20 grams of protein. The ingredients list is only shrimp and salt.

  1. We love ’em! Forgive me if I overstep, but here is a website,than%20any%20other%20farmed%20COO.&text=Ecuador%20produces%20excellent%20shrimp%20using,Ecuador%20than%20in%20other%20countries

    where most (if not all) of your questions can be answered. Don’t overcook!

  2. The last time I bought a bag of the pink shrimp at Costco it tasted “fishy” and when I looked at where the shrimp came from it said Thailand. For that reason, I will not buy this again.

    • Hi Karen,
      I have mostly given up trying to find what I would consider “edible shrimp” from Costco. Specifically, I prefer US Wild Caught or South American Wild Caught .
      I will not purchase either Farm Raised (from any locale) or Asian shrimp. Cannot verify their standards.

  3. These are excellent, tasty and the price is not bad. Small correction, there are 31-40 shrimp per pound, not per bag.
