  • Raw Shrimp



Step 1


Boiling is probably the most common method used to cook shrimp. However, done improperly, it can leave you with shrimp that's rubbery, tasteless, and generally hard to eat. The trick is not to cook the shrimp too long. If you are boiling medium sized shrimp, don't leave it in the water for more than 3 minutes. For large shrimp, don't boil them for more than 5 minutes.


This is one of the easiest ways to cook shrimp. Just wrap the shrimp in some foil, add a few pats of butter on top, and bake them in a 375 degree oven for about 5 minutes. Shrimp cooked this way are moist and full of flavor.

You can always cook your shrimp in the microwave. However, the point of a microwave is to make cooking foods faster, and cooking shrimp by other methods are already pretty fast. Also, it's too easy to overcook shrimp in the microwave if you're not extremely careful, and the shrimp often doesn't taste as good as when cooked by other methods.


If you're wondering how to cook raw shrimp on the grill, your best bet is to use skewers. This will, among other things, keep the shrimp from falling through the barbecue rack. Place the shrimp on the skewers, brush them with some butter, and then put them on the grill. Remember, shrimp cooks fast, so you want to turn the skewers frequently to make sure the shrimp cooks evenly on both sides.
