FAQs About This Recipe

Should I use raw or cooked shrimp?

You can use either for this one pot recipe, just make sure the shrimp is peeled and deveined. We prefer to use frozen uncooked shrimp. If you use frozen shrimp, make sure you thaw the shrimp as directed on the product packaging prior to beginning this recipe.

What size shrimp should I use for this recipe?

We used raw Great Value large shrimp, 31-40 count for this recipe. But any size shrimp will do!

How do you store this recipe?

We store this recipe in 3.4 cup glass containers that are airtight. 

Tips From the Kitchen

Remove the tails prior to cooking: You can cook the shrimp with or without the tails on. However, you will likely be thankful later if you take the time to remove the tails prior to cooking. Removing the tails prior to cooking makes this meal completely consumable with a form and there’s no need to get your hands dirty later. 

Think ahead for reheating: Shrimp is notoriously difficulty to reheat without drying out and losing flavor. Any time you meal prep shrimp, you should think ahead for how you plan to reheat it. For this recipe, we reheat it in a microwave. To help prevent it from drying out, we include about 1-2 oz of liquid from our jumbo cooker in the meal prep container and sprinkle it over the top before we reheat it. You can also place a damp paper towel over the top of your meal prep container to help prevent it from drying out while reheating.
