How do you know if shrimp is pre-cooked?

Without looking at the package, it may be hard. Shrimp can be all sorts of colors, too. It's usually pink. When you cook it even for a short time it turns white. When shrimp is cooked, it turns orange-pink in color. If it is in a package, there should be something printed on the package to indicate that the shrimp is cooked. I knew it turned either way, but that's right!
