Wow your guests by adding coconut shrimp skewers to entrées, salads and pasta dishes. High Liner Coconut Breaded Shrimp go from amazing to awesome when they’re tossed with seasoning right out of the fryer. To fit the bill, Lawry’sTM seasonings are fine enough to stick to the shrimp, and come in a great variety of flavours that coconut shrimp just love!

Cost Savings: Chicken wings are only about 54% edible meat (with 22% being skin and fat), at a cost of approximately $0.65 / oz of edible meat. In comparison, High Liner Coconut Breaded Shrimp Butter Fly Cut Clean Tail (Product code 7918) come out on top at a cost of $0.54 /oz, with only a fraction of the fat.

Three High Liner Coconut Breaded Shrimp skewered with a few grilled vegetables cost less than $2 per skewer. You can easily command $5 or more per coconut shrimp skewer add-on and achieve a food cost of 28 to 30%.  

As an appetizer, 6 coconut shrimp with dip cost just $2.60. At a selling price of $9 that’s a healthy 29% food cost.


Chef Hack: Toss coconut shrimp with Lawry’s dry wing seasonings immediately after they finish cooking.  Skewer the seasoned shrimp and use as add-ons for a variety of dishes from steaks to salads.
