FAQs

How to store leftover shrimp

The easiest way to store leftover shrimp is to keep it in a container in the fridge. Add on a lid and it should be fine for up to 2-3 days.

How to reheat shrimp

Low and slow is your answer. If you reheat shrimp too fast or too long, you’re going to overcook it and cause it to shrivel up.

Can you freeze shrimp and peppers?

Yes, you can. However, eating this fresh and then eating it again as leftovers will have a better taste and outcome.
