The quality of the shrimp make a difference- I prefer to use fresh shrimp. There are many sizes of shrimp and depending on variety, shells may be light grey, brownish-pink or red. When cooked, the shell will become reddish and meat will turn pink. Shrimp should have a mild odor and firm-textured meat.
