I’ve always been a big seafood person; growing up along the coast will do that to a girl. Clams, oysters, lobster, crab, shrimp, scallops…I’m all for it. However, seafood isn’t always the most cost effective protein to buy compared to something like chicken or beef, so I tend to not buy it as often. So when I find a tasty seafood find at a great cost (and requires minimal effort for me to prepare) I can’t help but snag it, and the latest Trader Joe’s frozen Shrimp Scampi is one I’m loving right now.

Sold at $8.99 a box, this Shrimp Scampi is seasoned with garlic and mixed with a lemon butter sauce, made with white wine, lemon juice, and grated Romano cheese. Each box comes with 13-ounces of cooked shrimp that is easy to prepare on the stove top. Technically the box includes three servings of shrimp, but you can easily turn it into a meal for four by adding it with other sides to make it a little more filling. My seafood-loving heart certainly wouldn’t mind eating this Shrimp Scampi on its own, but I also think it will taste great tossed with long pasta like spaghetti or linguine, top it on rice (or maybe this cheesy Parmesan risotto), or serve it with salad and a side of crusty garlic bread. Top it with some fresh parsley and you have yourself a gourmet seafood dinner under $10. I couldn’t ask for anything better, honestly.

We also think this Shirmp Scampi will taste delicious with their limited time organic lemon torchietti pasta, sold at $2.99 a box. To make your weeknight meal even easier, you could toss everything together with the lemon pesto from Trader Joe’s as well. But be sure to stock up now; these items are seasonal and likely won’t be on the shelves for long!
