For a touch of spice, add a dash of crushed red pepper to the partially cooked shrimp along with the dressing.

Understanding Shrimp Sizing

The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. When buying frozen shrimp, the count is generally listed on the package. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium, and 36 to 45 is small.

How to Quickly and Safely Thaw Shrimp

Because of their small size, shrimp can be thawed quickly, making them a perfect weeknight dish. To thaw quickly, add desired amount of shrimp to a resealable plastic bag; return unused shrimp to freezer. Squeeze all the air out of the plastic bag and seal. Submerge in a bowl of cold water and change the water every 10 min. until the shrimp are completely thawed.
