  1. If you like fish sticks, you’ll love these. Mostly coating and zero taste. Worst shrimp I’ve ever had. Costco really missed the boat with this product. Very disappointed.

  2. Was not impressed with the packaging. All the shrimp was in a big plastic bag not separated in small trays as advertised. Don’t know about taste yet, mad because of the big bag right now.

    1. Good question Raquel. I don’t know. Is this a product Costco carries. If so, I’ve never heard of it

  3. Costco shrimp tempura is the best! We make in the air fryer and it comes out crisp and delicious. We have made in oven and air fryer and will always use air fryer for them now. Disappointed we had not been able to buy them lately. Hopefully they get them back in stock.

    1. It really is a tasty treat! Glad you like them & the air fryer works out great for you. They should be back in stock soon because I see them in my local Costco.

  4. With the new packaging (greener?),how the hell do you open the bag inside the box so that it will be resealable?

    1. Good question Harriet. I haven’t seen the new packaging. I’ll have to get back to you when I do,. Maybe someone else can chime in on that…..

      1. There is a little perforated hole next to white line on one end, you can push through, grab it and pull out, out comes the white line and now you have a ziploc’esque resealable bag

  5. Sorry but I need to disagree on this item. I have purchased the Panko Shrimp from Costco for years and love them. I expected these to be the same, but I felt like I was eating shrimp flavored tempura bread. I scrape off about half of the coating before eating so I can actually feel that I am eating shrimp!

    1. Fair enough. I won’t argue with that. I really enjoy the Panko topping & I am quite the opposite. Sometimes I scrape off the coating, just so I can eat the coating =). Either way I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by

      1. Thanks for the tip on that Judy. I know a lot of people watch their sodium intake, so that is good to know.

  6. I love these shrimp, but like everything at Costco, when you go back to buy more, there is none.

    1. Ya. I’m chuckling because it’s the same story that everyone has about Costco, including myself! Still happens to me all the time. I find a product I like & think to myself…..I’ll grab that next time. Of course, it’s gone the next time I go to Costco. This is an item that should be in stock most of the time though. It’s a Kirkland Signature product & I’m guessing you’ll see it back in stock sooner rather than later. Let me know

  7. Just a heads up – its 7-8 minutes before you flip them for another 7-8 minutes. So its about 14-16 minutes total baking time.

      1. I have purchased these a number of times and we like them. Because I’m lazy, I cheat to avoid having to flip them. I put a cooling rack on a baking sheet which allows both sides to crisp up at the same time (I do this with fries too).

        I’m not too fond of the sauce that comes with it though. Instead, I mix some shredded coconut, crushed pineapple, and a coconut pineapple yogurt together to use as a dipping sauce.

        1. Ha! That’s a great idea. I like the ingenuity. Good to know about the sauce. I enjoy the sauce, but take that with a grain of salt because I like everything. Sounds like you put plenty of effort in the sauce to make up for the laziness in cooking them =). Thanks for the comment and the tips!

    1. So glad you told me. I only ‘Googled’ this item for the cooking directions as I threw away the box after I used the first tray.

      1. Good. I’m glad I was able to help. Funny thing is I do the same thing & use my own site for cooking directions sometimes. Glad I was able to help
