Gail's Shrimp Salad



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)!


                                                Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the recipe, Gail. I'm definitely going to make this as we've very much enjoyed it at your home.

    Like the Commodore's idea for the sammich, too.

  2. What a lovely shrimp dish, Gail. I love cooking with shrimp and I have a ton of basil that I need to use (my plants are growing like weeds) so I am sure subbing the parsley for basil would taste great! I'd love for you to share this at my party. http://www.thisgalcooks.com/2012/08/marvelous-mondays-link-party-8.html

    Have a fabulous afternoon!
