Ocean’s Canned Cocktail Shrimp (Metapenaeus monocerus) are a delicious addition to all your favorite seafood recipes. Already peeled and deveined, you can have all the flavour, without all the work! Canned shrimp is low in calories and high in protein. It serves wonderfully as a topping for salads and pizza. Ideal to keep on hand to add as protein to a meal or snack. As the main ingredient, it tastes tangy and juicy topped with cocktail sauce. Place a bed of lettuce on a small plate, add shrimp, squeeze on fresh lemon juice and top with a dollop of cocktail sauce. There you have it - an effortless, healthful and savory dish! Keeping some cans stocked in your pantry for last minute entertaining can be a relief. Be sure to keep canned shrimp, cream cheese and cocktail sauce on hand for drop-in visits.
