    We picked up some jumbo raw shrimp today at Fisherman's market, but since it was thawed out, we need to cook it before freezing some for future use (since I <3 shrimp so much... we picked up 3 pounds :lol:)

    I've done a little bit of searching, but haven't found any answers in regards to how to 'cook' the shrimp so that its good frozen, and also, how to devine :o

    Can any of you sea loving folk give me some tips?

    ahh, i thought it was fresh, my bad
    just grill it slowly in a pan, lil salt/pepp/fresh garlic and some good olive oil, pack it good when freezing.
