How do you reheat shrimp?

Reheating shrimp must be done very gently! If the shrimp are alone (not contained in a sauce or part of another recipe,) the reheating must be even more gentle to avoid overcooking and an undesired change in texture. In this case, a hot water bath is the most desired method. Just place a bowl containing the shrimp inside a bowl filled with hot water. Reheat the water as necessary until the shrimp are at the desired temperature. Never use a microwave to reheat shrimp that are not frozen. Even with frozen shrimp, most microwaves will overcook them quickly, producing a dried-out rubbery version of the original.
