Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Shrimp are sold in a variety of ways: raw (“green”) with the heads on; raw in the shell without the heads; raw, peeled and deveined; 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.
  • Raw shrimp should be stored in a leakproof bag or plastic container with a lid. Cook shrimp with 2 days.
  • This succulent shrimp dish is good as is, and it's also delicious served over hot cooked rice or fettuccine.
  • Shrimp is very perishable. Store it uncooked in the refrigerator no longer than 1 to 2 days.
  • Cook the shrimp only 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Shrimp will turn pink when done.
