Best and Best Bargain Shrimp Cocktail or Salad in Phoenix
AJ's has the biggest shrimp for about $2 each. Safeway has the same shrimp but at about double the cost (Safeway's sign says $2.95, but that's the cost per shrimp, not the cost per weight). Here is what our Gourmet Culinary Department recommends: If you want a fantastic shrimp cocktail, get the giant shrimps from AJ's, and just top it off with remoulade sauce comped to you from Ruth's Chris. If you want a fantastic shrimp salad, get the giant shrimps from AJ's, toss with lettuce, avocado, and tomato pieces, and mix with remoulade sauce comped to you from Ruth's Chris. If you can't get remoulade comped to you from Ruth's Chris, pour some ketchup into a small bowl and add a good amount of strong horseradish and squeeze in some lemon juice. It's not as good, but bon appetite!
