Expert Tips

  • Shrimp are sold in a variety of ways: raw (“green”) with heads on; raw in the shell without the heads; raw, peeled and deveined—as this recipe calls for—cooked in the shell; or cooked peeled and deveined. Shrimp should have a clean sea odor. If they smell like ammonia, they’re spoiled and should be discarded.
  • Fresh and frozen shrimp are sold by descriptive size name like jumbo or large and by “count” or number per pound. The larger the shrimp, the lower the count. Size and count vary throughout the United States.
  • Store shrimp in a leakproof bag or plastic container with a lid. Cook within two days.
  • Perfectly cooked shrimp is moist, pink and firm—but never tough or rubbery. They take just a short amount of time to cook, so be sure to follow the recipe, but also checking for the change of color and texture to help determine doneness.
