While perusing the selection of frozen seafood products, I tried to imagine which I could get my picky little eater to try. I settled on Seapak Popcorn Shrimp, which I would tell her, is “like chicken nuggets,” when she asked me suspiciously what “shrimp” was.
When I began to prepare the shrimp, I was surprised to see that they only take 10 minutes to bake in the oven. Other frozen products I have tried, particularly in the realm of seafood, tend to take longer. The popcorn shrimp was done in the time it took to make a box of macaroni and cheese. There was even downtime in the midst to have a bubble-blowing “dance party” with my 3-year-old.
Seapak Popcorn Shrimp are bite-size, and coated with oven crispy breadcrumbs. They can be baked in the oven, deep-fried, or pan-fried. I chose to prepare them in the oven.
My daughter is usually somewhat reluctant to try new things, but it only took a little prodding to get her to try her shrimp, and she gobbled them up pretty quickly after that. I liked them too because they emerged from the oven perfectly golden, and not over or undercooked. They didn’t stick to the pan or leave any residue behind. And, Seapak Popcorn Shrimp contain 135 mg Omega-3’s per serving. You can’t go wrong with this product; it’s a quick, easy, and delicious way to get the recommended 2 servings of seafood per week.
