Shrimp Cooking Tips:
Do not overcook shrimp! I cannot stress this enough. As soon as the shrimp turn pink on both sides, they are done. Shrimp will become chewy or rubbery if they are overcooked. Typically, it takes 3 to 5 minutes to cook shrimp depending on their size. Shrimp have a very mild flavor. They need lots of seasoning.
