Making shrimp is no big deal as long as you follow these basic steps!
1. Always opt for fresh shrimp and rice never buy the wrong size-
There are different kinds of shrimp that are available in the market! Depending on your budget, you can purchase the size you want! From colossal, jumbo to small, the options are simply endless.
This is to be noted that wild-caught shrimp is a hundred times tastier than farm-raised ones. In case you are making something like rice or noodles, small-size ones are perfect. Frozen shrimps are good enough as well.
2. If your method of thawing is not right
Once you have purchased the shrimp and rice probably plan to make it the next day, you will place it inside the freezer! But how do you thaw it later? Sometimes improper thawing can destroy the taste and texture of the shrimp!
You can use a colander and thaw the shrimp in the refrigerator overnight or pack and seal them inside airtight containers and place it under running cold water! Direct contact between shrimp and water should not be made as this can make the shrimp soggy and tender.
3. When you end up overcooking the shrimp
This is to be noted that you should never overcook the shrimp or you might end up destroying its taste completely! The skin will become too tough and chewy while the flavor will be diminished! Hence in the case of shrimp, you are expected to follow a strict time duration as you cook.
In case you are grilling there is a possibility that you might end up overcooking them as they are exposed to direct heat! The best trick is to make use of a skewer. It enables you to quickly flip the shrimps over and not waste time turning them one at a time.
4. Never forget to devein the shrimp
You must have noticed that larger shrimp is easier to devein than smaller ones. It is essential for you to devein the shrimp because although the digestive tract is not harmful to our stomach, there can be dirt and sand which you should never consume.
It can also affect the taste of the shrimp because as you chew, the shrimp will feel grainy. You can make use of a fork or a knife to give an incision to the back of the shrimp and then pluck it out!
5. What to do with the shell
Some prefer to let the shell of the shrimp remain because when you grill it, there is a crispy texture that it acquires while removing the shell is something that you might not enjoy! But there are also perks of getting rid of the shrimp, one can season the shrimp well and it will also absorb the spices well.
Depending on your preferences, you can get it removed or let it remain. However, in the case of small shrimps or when you are making rice with it, the best is to remove the shell and let it remain in case of grilling it and roasting colossal ones.
