Best uses for frozen shrimp/calamari

cresyd | Aug 19, 2012 03:06 AM

I live in a culinary world where, unfortunately, the only real access to shrimp and calimari is to buy it frozen. Calimari (for the most part) is cooked/flash frozen and shrimp is frozen raw (quite expensive) and frozen cooked (cheaper).

Now, I understand that neither option is necessarily ideal - but when I'm craving the flavor - what are good cooking preparations or ways to deal with these frozen products? For frozen shrimp, I've tried to defrost the cooked ones and just add them to sauces at the very last minute before serving (just to warm them up) - but I'd love some new ideas.
