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.
