The pros: Trader Joe’s 14 Shrimp Nuggets contain crispy and crunchy shrimp nuggets straight from your freezer.
The cons: Greasy. A lot of breading as compared to shrimp.
The verdict: If you enjoy a good, greasy, fried shrimp dish, then you’ll enjoy this. If you’ve been eating relatively healthy you might want to pass on this. You’ll still want to have these sit on a paper towel to absorb some of the extra grease here. I prepared these in the toaster oven, so I’m not sure how they would come out frying them again. They’re a good deal for 14 (not 15 or 13) Shrimp Nuggets at $4.99 as most fast food places would charge the same for far less. Worth a look if you like some good old fashioned greasy fried shrimp.

I might buy these again. If you are feeling the urge to have Arthur Treachers, this is a good option. They are tasty, but they are heavily breaded, so depending on what you like in fried shrimp you’ll really like this. The greasiness was strong on this so just be aware. Maybe after they are done cooking leaving them on a paper towel might help. I served them with Trader Joe’s Tartar Sauce which is pretty good for $1.99
