The one thing we love around our home at dinner time is sea food! I’m not much of a chef when it comes to cooking sea food so we generally have to go to a sea food restaurant to get our fix, the only problem with that is that the nearest sea food place near us is 160 miles from our home, and lets face it that’s quite a ways to have to drive for dinner! Recently I was given an opportunity to review a product from SeaPak here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity!

The SeaPak Shrimp Company. Making Great Shrimp Easy ®
We were sent a vip coupon so that we could go to our local grocer and choose a SeaPak product to review and as easy as I thought this would be, I was very wrong! After much debate about which of the SeaPak products we wanted to try we decided on the Coconut Shrimp. When we do get the luxury to visit our favorite sea food restaurant 160 miles away from our home I always get the coconut shrimp so I just had to give the SeaPak Coconut Shrimp a shot to see if it was as good as the restaurants!
Once we got ready for dinner I prepared the shrimp according to the label instructions. I could not believe how easy it was to prepare and how quickly dinner was ready! We decided to pair the Coconut Shrimp up with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. The meal was delicious. I could not believe how amazing the SeaPak Coconut Shrimp tasted it was just like the restaurants only we didn’t have to drive to get it and it cost way less!
Now that we have tried the Coconut Shrimp from SeaPak I can’t wait to try out some of the other varieties available. I’ve always been a bit iffy of frozen premade sea foods but SeaPak has completely changed my mind and I can’t wait to try some of their other yummy looking products! They also offer some awesome recipes on their website so I am going to be sure to try some of them out this summer to help with our quick and easy meals after our long days outside.
Everyone was thrilled with the way the SeaPak Coconut Shrimp tasted and I can guarantee that SeaPak will be on our shopping list for years to come as long as they continue to make such amazing shrimp products! The preparation was super easy and the taste was amazing!! We had a restaurant quality meal at home without the harsh price!
If you want restaurant quality sea food at a fraction of the price and in the comfort of your own home without spending the entire day slaving in the kitchen I highly recommend picking up a package of SeaPak Coconut Shrimp or one of their other easy to prepare meals!
