How to choose Arctic shrimp
When choosing a guaranteed merchant to buy Arctic shrimp, you need to pay attention to whether the outer packaging is damaged and whether the shelf life is coming. Chilled products should be uniform in size, complete in shape, and full of meat.
Arctic shrimp storage method
Arctic shrimps are cold-water shrimps. They are generally chilled and frozen, and can be stored for a long time as long as they are placed in the freezer. It should be noted that the thawed Arctic shrimp need to be consumed as soon as possible, and do not repeatedly freeze.
Arctic shrimp is rich in nutrition. It contains a large amount of high-quality unsaturated fatty acids, and it is also a source of high-quality protein. It does not contain cholesterol and has a very low fat and calorie content. At the same time, it is also rich in vitamin B12, zinc, iodine, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, iron and trace elements such as calcium, magnesium and sodium. It is a very healthy food in the 21st century.
When thawing, take the Arctic shrimp out of the refrigerator and leave it to thaw naturally at room temperature (remember not to soak it in water, especially in hot water, because it will lose the original flavor of the Arctic shrimp). When the temperature is high in summer, do not thaw directly at normal temperature. You should thaw slowly in a fresh-keeping cabinet at 0 ~ 4 ℃, so as to keep the taste and freshness of Arctic shrimp to the maximum extent.
