How to Cook Peeled Shrimp

by Kelly

I know how to de-shell & devein fresh, raw shrimp but I don't know how to cook them. Do I boil them? If so, for how long? What color should they be?

How to Cook Shrimp on the Stove

I would not suggest boiling peeled and deveined shrimp they shrink a lot and curl real bad.

But if you boil them, bring your water to a boil, put your shrimp in and then cover the pan. Take the pan off of the burner and let them set for about 2 minutes.

Then check, they will be pink, but you will need to check them, you want them to be opaque and not translucent.
