Shrimp is one of the most popular foods in the world. In the U.S., it is the most eaten form of sea food. Beginners often ask how to cook shrimp, but there is no single answer for this question. It depends on how you want your shrimp cooked. Shrimp is a very versatile food, and anyone who has seen the movie Forrest Gump, knows that shrimp can be cooked in many different ways. Some of the most popular forms of shrimp are pan fried, deep fried, boiled, steamed, and grilled.

To boil shrimp, shell them and clean them. Most people cut the heads off the shrimp, but the tail and legs can remain. Removal of any part is completely optional. It is also optional to remove the black vein running down the back of the shrimp. Boil water in a pan with a pinch of salt. Add the shrimp, cover, and cook them for 3 8 minutes, depending on their size. Medium shrimp should be cooked for about 4 minutes and jumbo shrimp for 8 minutes. If steaming the shrimp, they should be steamed, covered, for about 7 minutes. They will be white when they are fully cooked, but be careful not to cook them too long or they will be chewy.

If grilling shrimp, they should be skewered and cooked at a high temperature for only 3 or 4 minutes. Pan fried shrimp are best cooked in olive oil or butter at a high heat. Fry for 3 5 minutes. If deep frying, use vegetable oil heated to 375 degrees F. Before frying, dip them in a bowl of milk and powder them with flour. Fry for only 3 minutes, until golden.
