How do I store Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp?
Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp should be stored in your freezer until you are ready to defrost them for use.

What’s the best way to defrost Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp?
We recommend thawing shrimp in a covered container in your refrigerator overnight (approximately 8 to 9 hours).

How do I prepare Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp?
1) Once the shrimp have completely thawed in your refrigerator, remove them from glaze water and place onto a dish.
2) If you are using the shrimp in a cold application, simply add them to your dish (i.e. salad, sushi, sandwiches, etc.)
3) If you are using the shrimp in a hot cooking application, add them at the end of cooking simply to warm them. Our shrimp should not be re-cooked.

How long can I keep Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp in the freezer?
Please refer to the best before date on the packaging. Freezer products at home are subject to freezer burn and dehydration, therefore we recommend storing for no longer than a couple of months.

How are Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp cooked and peeled?
After an overnight maturation process, Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp are processed in an advanced cooking and peeling facility. The cooking-to-freezing process takes only 20 minutes, ensuring superior freshness, texture and flavour.

What are the benefits of Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp?
Our bite-size shrimp have a rich pink colour, delicate texture and sweet taste. They are low in fat and carbohydrates, high in protein and rich in omega 3’s. Harvested from the crystal clear, icy waters of the North Atlantic, our Cold Water Shrimp are 100% natural, with no preservatives.

What is Early Mortality Syndrome and is it present in Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp?
Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) is a disease caused by bacteria that typically affects shrimp 40 days old or younger. EMS does not affect humans, but can often be fatal to shrimp. Clearwater Cold Water Shrimp are not affected by EMS because our shrimp are wild-harvested and EMS only occurs in farm-raised shrimp.

What is the difference between coldwater shrimp and warm water shrimp?
Cold Water shrimp are typically small in size and harvested from the icy waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans, while warm water shrimp are larger in size and harvested or farmed from tropical waters, including the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and Asia.
