I am an unapologetic lover of shrimp cocktail. I've been a big fan since I was a kid. I go to a buffet and there's shrimp cocktail everywhere. I'm filling my plate and I used to buy it a lot at Costco, they have this beautiful shrimp cocktail tray, but I don't have it anymore. Here are the reasons why when you buy this shrimp cocktail tray, the price is per pound $88.99 per pound, the thing is they weigh everything, your lemons are $8.99 per pound, your cocktail sauce 8 .99 per pound and of course shrimp, and because I'm a psychopath, I went and weighed everything to see how many shrimp you get for this pound and a half tray in total and this is what I found, take my notes.
Here it turned out 20 oz of shrimp, 4 oz by weight of cocktail sauce and about an ounce of lemon wedges or so again I thought this was the only way they had this in the frozen section peeled and deveined precooked shrimp it's so good like the shrimp cocktail they are selling $8.99 a pound this is only 7.95 a pound and again because I'm a crazy person. Then I made another tray that looks like this. Look at the style of the food. Look at that tray now. The same exact weights and measurements as each other. Let's go ahead and break down our pricing.
Take out my notes. This one came out. at $14.3 like I said before I broke it all down now this one here with our frozen shrimp Frozen pre-cooked shrimp I bought some cocktail sauce at the supermarket easy lemons this one came out to $114 so we saved this one was $143 we saved about $ 3 boom if you're a shrimp cocktail fan like me, this savings will add up to several thousand dollars a year.

It's an easy way to save a ton. money on turkey meat why is it so expensive anyway I don't know I don't even know I don't even know let's move on to the next thing let's talk about salmon at Costco they have a farmed athletic they have they have a farmed Atlantic salmon that's $1.99 a pop pound is that salmon that has that very faint pink color.
It's a funny story when I used to teach culinary school. I showed it to a student who was from Alaska and he said, "Oh, that's the pink fish." today and I'm like, what are you talking about pink fish? He says, that's this, it's the stuff we'll send to the lower 48 and we'll keep all the good stuff. It is the offer with the least salmon they have there, they also offer it frozen. Frozen farmed Atlantic salmon costs $11.33 a pound. The one I like is that you go down a little further for seafood and find that it's Farm Rais, but it's a kind of steelhead salmon.
I think it tastes much better than Atlantic salmon. both are farmed, but again, steelhead is better quality in my opinion and costs $9.99 a pound. I get better salmon at a cheaper price. Yes, please register me. How can I get Costco to pay for my membership now again? It is a membership club, so you have to pay to enter the regular membership which costs $60 and the executive membership costs $120 per year.

No Costco video would be complete without talking about the best deal ever on the $150 hot dog. Costco hasn't changed the price of the hot dog forever, making it $150 for a five-pound hot dog and a soda. If you can't leave Costco without a hot dog, maybe it would be against the rules.
