Why does my shrimp taste rubbery?

Asked: Andrew Lultschik πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Fishing, Last Updated:

When shrimp are rubbery/chewy/eraser-like, they are overcooked. Always arrest their cooking when they appear 60% +/- opaque. Generally a strip of semi-translucent flesh should remain down the 'groove' on the back of the shrimp (where the vein is/was). As for purchasing, check out the Pltt Seafood Forum.
