Food and Recipes
Thawing shrimp? Help?
So I have some frozen shrimp that I need to throw in a crockpot for the final 15-20 minutes of cooking. They're already cooked, but do I throw them in frozen or what? The recipe does not say frozen shrimp. Do I thaw them? I don't fuckin know.
I'd thaw them in a bowl of COLD water, shouldn't take long at all
I'd thaw them in cold water. Or you *can* throw them in frozen, but it will add moisture to your dish
There is nothing to be gained from treating others poorly.
Don't be a dick.
Put them in a collinder and put them in the sink and run cold water over them till they are thawed.
let them eat cake! because id rather have pie!!!
Yep through in cold water
Thanks all! Too bad the gumbo-like dish turned into mush. Didn't taste bad, just... gloppy. And it was in for an hour LESS than the recipe said. Oh well! Because DH is awesome, he went back for seconds after his "mushy" comment. Could have been because he's awesome, could have been a defensive move.
Shrimp cook fast--if you this recipe again I would cut down on the time especially if you thaw the shrimp
did you cook the gumbo and the rice separately, or together? i know that sounds like a lame ass question.....but ....had to ask.
Anyone know how long cocktail shrimp stay good in your refrigerator? I have some from new years eve but afraid to eat them now. They were frozen that night and in the fridge since then.
I'd toss them if they have been in the fridge thawed for 2 weeks. The most I've ever kept them in the fridge after thawing is 1 day.
is right. If the rice cooks too long it falls apart and turns to mush. I learned that the hard way. I always cook my rice separately and dump it in at the end so it keeps it's texture.

!! I appreciate it.
No problem, I'm not sure the "right" answer but i guarantee 2 weeks is way too long.
Food poisoning is not fun!
I HATE cooking rice! I wanted to just throw that shit in the cooker!
I use instant rice and use the boil bag kind - always add after I'm done cooking, the full disk...
yeah i think you should throw the old shrimp away.... two weeks is WAY too long
