Have you ever had the prepared shrimp salad sold at Costco? It's oh, soooo . . . good! And if you like it as much as I do, you would create your very own delicious version, like I did! It's very easy, and simple to make! First off, located in the freezer section at Costco, you will find a 2lb. bag of cooked, tail-off shrimp, in a orange bag, labeled Kirkland Signature. These are the best! No preservatives, chemical free, peeled, deveined, and you get 50-70 per pound.
For my recipe, you will need:
2 lb. bag, tail-off, deveined, and peeled shrimp
1 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons squeezed fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh parsley or parsley flakes
1/2 tablespoon Old Bay
salt and pepper to taste
Thaw the bag of shrimp in the refrigerator overnight (per bag instructions). Next, in a large bowl, squeeze lemon juice over the shrimp and gently mix in the celery, onions, old bay, mayonnaise, and parsley together. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill for a bit to make sure all the flavors of the ingredients blend. Serve on a bed of lettuce. Shrimply delicious!
Note: For leftovers, my hubby, likes to put the salad in the food processor, on chop, to make a yummy sandwich (sammich)!
