Question about deveined and peeled frozen shrimp.

MsBees | Dec 8, 2011 04:34 PM

It's me again :). One of the dishes I am serving tomorrow night at my sons Holiday party is roasted shrimp. I did a test run the other night and they were delicious.But there are a few things I need help with. First off I need to explain that my husband is allergic to fish. So I have never cooked or served it while he was home. Also I will be cooking 12 lbs shrimp. Here are my questions;

-Can I put the shrimp in the refrigerator over night to defrost?The bag says to defrost the shrimp in a colander under cold running water. But thats a lot of shrimp to defrost that way.

-Can I partially cook the shrimp, refrigerate and then reheat before serving? In my test I cooked a 1 lb in a single layer at 400 degrees for about 9 to 10 minutes. I was hoping that I could cook the shrimp in batches ahead of time for possibly 6 to 7 minutes and then combine them all in one or two large disposable pans. Refrigerate them, bring them to room temp and reheat them in the disposable pans in a 400 degree oven for 3 to 4 minutes.

Thanks again for your help
