Must you cook dried shrimp? [moved from San Francisco board]

pamela joy | Jun 24, 2012 05:40 PM

Bought a bag of dried shrimp (from Thailand) to make Miang Kam. I have numerous recipes for it, and none mention cooking the shrimp, but the package reads "TO BE COOKED OR FRIED BEFORE USE." It could be that the admonition on the package is a liability issue. I'm not sure what to do. Rinse the shrimp? Soak 'em? Boil 'em? Microwave 'em? Does anyone know?
Thanks. ---PJ
