Safely Thawing Shrimp
It's great to have a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for a quick meal. Thaw frozen shrimp in the refrigerator, not at room temperature. Or, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water and change the water every 10 min. until the shrimp are completely thawed.
Cooking Fresh Shrimp
As with most shellfish, fresh shrimp should be cooked briefly to avoid a tough rubbery texture. If precooking for a recipe, add the peeled and deveined shrimp to a pot of boiling water and cook just a few minutes, until they turn pink and begin to curl. Drain and rinse under cold water.
