How to Tell When Shrimp is Cooked?
A perfectly cooked shrimp has an opaque rosy hue with a shine and is firm enough to curl without being constrained. Shrimp become matte white or grey when overdone. If your shrimp are curled into an excellent C shape, that’s another easy way to tell if they’re done.
Cooking shrimp can be challenging because the difference between undercooked, cooked perfectly, and overcooked is only a few minutes. They’re slimy and unsafe to eat when they’re undercooked. Overcooked shrimp has a rubbery feel and is extremely chewy.
