What is the best way to defrost frozen raw shrimp?

You generally can’t cook raw shrimp in its frozen state (unless package directions instruct you otherwise), so you need to plan time for thawing.

  • Refrigerator Method: Put wrapped frozen raw shrimp in the refrigerator to thaw, with a tray beneath it, to catch the drippings.
  • Cold Water Method: Put wrapped frozen raw shrimp in a colander and run cold water over it until it thaws. Or, immerse the package in cold water and change the water approximately every 30 minutes until the shrimp is thawed.
