Quick, easy and delicious shrimp street corn salad recipe made with five simple Trader Joe’s ingredients! It doesn’t get any easier than this.
Happy Trader Joe’s Tuesday! I will be slowly adding new Trader Joe’s meals that require five ingredients or less. Once I get the majority of them uploaded on here, I will create a round up blog post. The round up blog post with have photos and link the recipe pages. So it will be a one stop Trader Joe’s meal page! This will be perfect for the days you plan your recipes for the week.
This easy shrimp salad recipe just requires shrimp, avocado, chile lime seasoning, frozen Mexican style roasted corn, and the southwestern chopped salad. Obviously everything is from Trader Joe’s.
I love the frozen Argentinian red shrimp. They’re the best frozen shrimp I’ve ever had. They almost have a lobster taste. I make a ton of recipes using them because they’re just too good!

A product I recently discovered at TJ’s is their frozen Mexican style street corn. It’s so good and makes life a little easier. It’s perfect for my street corn brussels sprouts recipe! Or even just as a side dish with taco night. All you do is throw everything besides the cheese in a skillet and let it cook until it’s all melted. Throw the cheese on top and serve it! Easy as can be.
How to cook the shrimp?
I decided to cook my shrimp with the Chile lime seasoning. I always quickly defrost by shrimp by adding the shrimp to a colander and rinsing them with cold water until they’re thawed. Then, I pat them dry and season them with a pinch of sea salt. Then I add a little bit of the Chile lime seasoning on both sides of the shrimp. Another great seasoning would be their new Elote seasoning.
This shrimp salad recipe is perfect for week-night dinners or a quick and healthy lunch!
Let me know in the comments if there’s any other Trader Joe’s products you’d like me to make a recipe with! I’m always looking for new products to try. I hope you enjoy this easy meal as much as I do!Print
Shrimp Street Corn Salad
- Yield: 2–3 servings 1x
1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
1 lb. Argentinian red shrimp, defrosted
1 – 1.5 tsp Chile lime seasoning
1 (14 oz.) bag of Trader Joe’s Mexican style roasted corn
1 (13.6 oz.) bag of Trader Joe’s southwestern chopped salad
1 avocado, pit removed, sliced or chopped in small pieces
limes for squeezing, optional
In a large skillet add the Mexican street corn and cook according to package instructions. When done cooking remove from heat.
Pat dry your shrimp and season with Chile lime seasoning. Set aside.
In a large bowl add the ingredients from the salad and mix to combine. Add the Mexican street corn.
Wipe down the skillet that was used to cook the street corn in.
Add 1 tbsp of oil to the skillet over medium heat then arrange the shrimp in a single layer.
Cook the shrimp on each side until they’re cooked through. It should only take a few minutes per side.
Add cooked shrimp to the salad along with the avocado.
Add a squeeze of lime if desired and enjoy!
* the street corn and salad both come with cotija cheese. I personally only use the one portion and save the other for another time.
Made this tonight and it was so good and easy. Will definitely be making again. thank you!
I LOVE your website!! I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s as well!! I’ve just started using some of your recipes and love every one of them!! What I would love to see you come up with is what to do with their lobster ravioli!! That would be exciting!! Thanks for sharing your ideas!!
Thank you! I love that idea – thank you! Trader Joe’s raviolis are always so good.
ThE street corn bag says it has a “creamy dressing.” Do you still use the dressing from the salad kit, or do you find that the corn and shrimp are enough to dress the salad?
I use both!
Absolutely delicious and SO easy. I’d like To try making this again, but make the corn/shrimp beforehand and chill them to keep the whole salad cold. It was delicious with the warm ingredients too, though!
outstanding and made it with Chicken
So easy and so tasty like so many of your recipes! And who doesn’t love Trader joes!
