Shrimps not "smooth" after boiling (or poaching) for shrimp cocktail

JoanNYC | May 28, 2012 01:53 PM

Everytime I boil (or poach) shrimps for shrimp cocktail they wind up with a kind-of "residue"... hard to describe but almost like the shrimp are crumbling

I definitely do not overcook them... very careful. Was wondering if it had to do with the shrimp I am using. Most of the time they are from the seafood counter at my local Food Emporium. I know they quick defrost them and was wondering if that was possibly the reason

They taste fine and I am not making them for company but still find this annoying

Thanks
