Step 1

Set your sous vide water bath to 135°F.

In a large bowl, toss shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and the baking soda. Place shrimp in a heavy duty zipper-lock bag or a vacuum bag. If desired, add 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter and aromatics. Remove all air from the bag using the water displacement method or a vacuum sealer. Press shrimp into a single layer.

Add bagged shrimp to preheated water bath and cook at 135°F for 45 minutes and up to 1 hour (the texture should show very little variation within this time frame). For shell-on shrimp, add 5 minutes to the minimum cooking time. Remove shrimp from bag to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve hot, or chill and serve cold.
