Trader Joe's Thai Shrimp Gyoza

  • e

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?

  1. 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..

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

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

        1. 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.

          1. These were amazing! I know this post is old, but wanted to weigh in!

              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.
