SHRIMP DINNER RECIPES
How do you tell that shrimp are cooked?Shrimp are generally cooked when they turn pink and opaque in color. If you are unsure whether the shrimp are cooked, you can use a meat thermometer to check their internal temperature. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), shrimp should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Keep in mind that the cooking time for shrimp will depend on the size of the shrimp and the cooking method you are using. Smaller shrimp will cook faster than larger shrimp, and grilling or sautéing shrimp will take less time than boiling or baking them. If you are unsure whether the shrimp are cooked, it is always best to err on the side of caution and cook them until they are no longer translucent in the center.
