Have you decided in the last minute to make a shrimp recipe for dinner?  Need to defrost the shimp right away?  I have great news for you!  You don’t have to put your dinner plans on hold, as you can thaw frozen shrimp quickly and easy, in less than 15 minutes.

Here’s the fast way to thaw frozen shrimp:

Put frozen shrimp in a colander.  Put colander in a large bowl.  Put the bowl with the colander in a sink, and fill it with cold water.  Leave for 10 minutes.

Lift the colander with the shrimp out of the bowl.   Run the cold water through the shrimp, and move the shrimp around with your hands while the water is running.  This will thaw the last remaining pieces of ice, and the shrimp will be completely defrosted and ready to go.
