Birds Eye Voila! Shrimp Scampi Product Review

I am usually not a big fan of purchasing prepackaged meals for dinner, however, I had a coupon for this Birds Eye Voila! Shrimp Scampi product so we purchased it.

This product can be found in the frozen meal aisle at your grocery store and isn't cheap (in my opinion) but with the $1.00 off coupon, we decided to buy it and try it out.

You need to keep the product frozen, right up until cooking time. The package holds 1 lb. and 5 ounces. The package also states that it's a complete meal in 10 minutes. The meal can be made stove top or in the microwave. We chose to make ours stove top as the package states that is the preferred method.

Package Description: Why go out to eat? This classic dish marries plump, tender shrimp with succulent garden peas and sweet red and yellow bell peppers. It's all blended in a garlic butter sauce and served over linguini pasta for a true Italian taste.

This package will feed 2 adult eaters.

My Review: The sauce packet is frozen inside the bag with the other ingredients and I had a hard time, getting the sauce packet to release from the frozen shrimp and pasta so I had to run it under some warm tap water to get them to separate. This meal did only take 10 minutes to make so it was quick on the busy night that we prepared it.

Taste: I personally didn't care for the meal at all but that is mainly because I don't like peas and I don't like garlic sauces on my pastas...in my opinion, the garlic taste was too strong. However, my husband who is a fan of strong garlic tastes totally loved this meal.

Shelly's rating: 5 out of 10 stars on taste
Sam's rating: 8 out of 10 stars on taste

I personally would not buy it again as it just wasn't my cup of tea in regards to taste. However, my husband said he will buy it again as he enjoyed the ease of preparation and the taste.

Note: I was not compensated in any way for reviewing this product. I personally purchased it and used it. My product review is 100% unbiased and based on my thoughts and use of the product.
