If you are preparing shrimp for a salad or other recipe that calls for cooked shrimp, you can cook the shrimp ahead of time in simmering water or in a steamer for 2 to 4 minutes, depending on their size. Don’t peel the shrimp until after you cook them, or too much flavor will be lost in the liquid.
