Trader Joe's Thai Shrimp Gyoza

Ordinarily, I have low expectations for frozen prepared foods. Surprise - Trader joe's Thai Shrimp Gyoza is a find. Simple, tasty, without artificial fillers. You can steam, fry or microwave them (they are fully cooked to begin with). They are made in Thailand. A 1 pound package is $3.69. What are other hounds' opinions of the other gyoza offerings at TJ's?

    the chicken gyoza dumplings are a staple for us. i like to boil them in chicken broth and add some veggies (fresh or frozen) for a quick and filling soup..

      The pork gyoza are great. The vegetable ones just fall apart. Their shrimp shumai are also good.

        I've had the vegatable gyoza. I thought they were kind of mediocre - not one of the TJ buys I'd do again.

          I'm a fan of the shrimp gyoza. I throw them on top of some brown rice and add TJ's frozen snow peas, then nuke it for an easy and healthy lunch while at work.

              Contrary to previous poster from, uh, 9 years ago, i think the veggie ones are really great too!

                I also think the vegetable ones are pretty good.

              I love these. Eat them with the Trader Joe's gyoza dipping sauce and a squirt of Sriracha all the time.

                That's exactly how I eat them too. Sometimes when I want a real burn, I'll use some TJ habenero sauce mixed with the dipping sauce.
