Thread: Shrimp too old to eat?

    Default Shrimp too old to eat?

    Found a package of 2010 shrimp I'd caught and frozen in water. Wife says to toss it, but I say it's ok to eat. What do you think?

    If no freezer burn I'd go for it.

    Just had some spring 2011 shrimp this evening. I would eat them as long as they were properly packaged.

    When you thaw time and peel them you will know. If the ends of some are outside of the water, the meat will be a bit yellow. I just rip this part off and use the rest when I see this.

    Ate them an they were good. I'd frozen them in water and all parts were covered, so no freezer burn. Have a couple more packages the same age. Wife said to throw them out. I said ok, but next time she's out of town I know what I'll be eating.
