Need recs for Trader Joe's frozen meat/seafood appetizers - anything worthwhile?

I'm hosting a last minute cocktail and appetizer party on Saturday afternoon. I think I have all of the bases covered except in the protein area. I'll be near a TJ's on Friday and thought I'd ask the knowledgeable Chowhounds here if there is anything they would recommend.

I've searched through the Yea/Nay threads and haven't found much. Thanks in advance!

  1. We like the tempura shrimp. Put them on a rack in the oven and turn half way and you got some super crisp shrimp! :)


    1. The cocktail-sized meatballs are good.

      1. The pork gyoza / potstickers are pretty tasty.

        1. We've had these panang curry sticks a couple of times recently and liked them quite well.

          1. The frozen crabcake appetizers are good and I get + reviews whenever I serve them.

              Those ARE good. I used to keep them on hand.
