I never plan ahead enough to defrost in the fridge. The choices are to thaw under running water, or steam from frozen. Which tastes better, in your experience?
Bonus question: For thawing under running water, is it better to put them in a ziploc and remove the air, or just throw them directly in the bowl? I'm concerned about water-logging the shrimp and washing out some flavor, but I also don't want it to take forever. Can I speed it up with warm or luke-warm water, if I cook them immediately after?
