Select high quality, fresh shrimp for freezing. Shrimp can be frozen
cooked or raw, in or out of the shell. For maximum storage life and quality,
freeze shrimp raw, with heads removed but shells still on. Be sure to
wash and drain the shrimp if frozen raw.
Quickly chill shrimp cooked before freezing. Package in freezer containers
or bags, leaving ¼-inch headspace; seal and freeze.
Recommended freezer shelf life: 3 to 6 months
