I cooked the IQF (individually quick frozen) raw Gulf shrimp I bought from the (fancy) specialty market twice now with surprising results. The first attempt - shrimp and grits - were truly awful. Seemed like it was the shrimp but I was thinking that I might have overcooked them for the odd flavor. This second attempt, sautéed w/garlic and spice for shrimp tacos, also awful. The shrimp taste like iodine to me, and smell like it as well. Defrosted, they look good in color and texture. Does anyone have any insight, please? If there is something I can do, I still have over a pound frozen. Colleen
