Fresh Shrimp Recipes
William Said:Shrimp recipes?
We Answered:I like to saute them in olive oil, butter, lots of garlic and fresh lemon juice, if you want it a little spicy throw in some red pepper flakes. Serve it with pasta or rice and a good crusty bread. Fast and delicious.
Kevin Said:how do you freeze fresh shrimp? also, do you know of any good fresh shrimp recipes?
We Answered:I was searching the 'net make sure my facts were straight, and I found this. It's very succinct and just the information you're looking for:
To freeze fresh shrimp, freeze shrimp raw, with shell on, and completely submerged in water! This prevents freezer burn and drying out, and retains flavor and texture. Use heavy-duty freezer bags or Tupperware or any container that will hold water without puncturing. Freeze in amounts that you plan to use for each meal. Raw headless shrimp in the shell maintain quality during freezing longer than frozen, cooked shrimp and are best if frozen at the peak of freshness. Frozen raw shrimp maintains quality for approximately 6-7 months though it can be kept longer, whereas home frozen cooked shrimp begin to lose quality after approximately one month.
To thaw shrimp, run frozen shrimp under cold running water until completely thawed or thaw shrimp in the refrigerator. Never thaw in hot water or at room temperature.

Virginia Said:What is your favorite recipe using fresh shrimp?
We Answered:Mine would be stuffed shrimp! MMMMMMMM
Buy the jumbo shrimp and clean and devain them and butterfly them. Use a meat mallet, flat side, to make it thin, about 1/8". Spread some chive & onion cream cheese along with some roasted red peppers and roll it up. Dip it in an egg mixture and dredge it in bread crumbs. You can fry it or bake it. Your choice. It is AWESOME!!!!!!
