Cooking Instructions Print Version

For additional cooking instructions, please see the chef's tips and the USDA cooking recommendations

1. Oven

Bake or broil. Split them down the back and stuff them with garlic butter. Bake at 350°F for 8-12 minutes until they are pink and firm. Delicious!

Stuff them with crab salad then bake as noted above. Crab-stuffed shrimp - fantastic!

2. Grill

Put them on a skewer and grill with indirect heat for 5-10 minutes until they are pink and firm. They are great when enjoyed with a nice steak.

3. Stove Top

Boil for 4-5 minutes (thawed) until they turn a nice reddish pink. Also great grilled or wrapped in bacon. Sauté some with sliced fresh mushrooms, garlic, lemon juice and white wine for a scampi. Peel them and sauté with tomatoes and basil for a neat pasta dish.
