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.
