I have a couple #s of raw devained, peled shrimp that I am going to egg this afternoon to chill for for a family gathering tomorrow.

My question is how to store in fridge? Gallon ziplock, tupperware? Just don't want them to be rubbery or mushy.
I don't do shrimp often.

I'll cook with a little EVOO, S&P and some rub.

    Ziplock will be fine.

    Do not overcook!

    Shrimp cooks really fast and will get rubbery right under your nose! :)

    Ziplock or t'ware is fine.

    Rubbery shrimp comes from overcooking. You want to pull it just as it turns opaque throughout. You know how shrimp curls as it cooks? You want to pull it just as it forms a "C". If the ends close on each other it's gone too far. Time is highly variable depending on setup, but about 125 internal temp is plenty.

    I would place a couple paper towels in whatever you put them in just in case a temp difference made them sweat in the fridge. :)
