Pick up this bag of frozen Kirkland Signature raw shrimp from Costco. Don’t let the number on the bag fool you. It’s 21 – 25 per pound so that comes out to a total of 42 – 50 shrimp per bag (scroll for photos). That’s a great deal for only $15.79 or $7.89 a pound. Buy a bag of this Costco shrimp and use it in salads, sandwiches, pasta’s or just pan fry it with some Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter and eat it right out of the pan. Grab only what you need and keep the bag in the freezer. For all you seafood lover’s out there, this is a great deal, especially when they go on sale. They have a sweet natural flavor & are naturally low in fat. They are high in vitamins and minerals & a good source of protein.

I buy the large 21-25 shrimp per pound. I thaw in the refrigerator . Once thawed I rinse and cook in boiling season water. How long should I boil the shrimp so they are not tough? I am never quite sure.
I just bought a bag and out of curiosity cut and cleaned the shrimp after it was defrosted and found the intestinal tract still intact even though it’s advertised as deveined and ready to cook but I have zero complaints about the flavor and quality otherwise it has great value I would just recommend cleaning before cooking.
Thanks for the heads up Rianna. That’s one of those things you may just want to re-wash and check yourself. They probably don’t de-vein with the detail that the normal consumer would. Thanks for the tip and heads up
I Always buy tail on, uncooked and I never taste anything but shrimp and I think they’re very good.
Ya. I’m in the same boat as you Curt. Thanks for chiming in. Glad you enjoy them
I really like this shrimp.i would wish for Costco wild-caught shrimp, but these have always been tasty.
Agreed. I always prefer to have the wild caught over farm raised, but we do make exceptions & this is one of them. It’s nice to keep this bag in the freezer & the fact that they are de-veined makes it an easy meal. Thanks for stopping by
Just cooked up a bag of the frozen,raw with tail off and it tasted like chlorine.
Ouch. Sorry to hear. I’ve had this frozen shrimp few times & can’t say I’ve tasted chlorine. Did you soak them & rinse?
I’ve been using Kirkland frozen shrimp for many years but I had the same taste with the last bag I bought in April. Very strong chlorine taste.
Interesting. I haven’t purchased a bag in a couple months now. Next time I grab a bag I’ll see if I can taste that same chlorine smell a few people have mentioned. Sorry to hear about that. Thanks for letting us know
