If you buy fresh shrimp, they should have no fishy smell. Fresh shrimp should smell clean, like any other seafood, like saltwater or seawater.
Press the prawns with your fingers. If your fingers are dented, the shrimp is not fresh.

Never thaw shrimp on the counter, as this can be dangerous. Always defrost in the refrigerator.
Freshly cooked shrimp taste best when eaten right away, but can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
Allow cooked shrimp to cool completely, then store in an airtight freezer bag or container for up to 3-4 months. When you're ready to use them, take them straight out of the fridge and put them in a pot to warm up.
