How Long Will Frozen Shrimp Keep in Fridge?

DH put a package of frozen shrimp in the fridge instead of freezer yesterday. The shrimp is now defrosted. How long will it stay good in the fridge? We will not be home today - will it still be safe for tomorrow night or should I toss it?

Two days should not be a problem. Cook them Monday and enjoy. Also, you can freeze any leftovers after cooking.

Thanks Andy! I guess I should mention that the shrimp are precooked. The shrimp themselves are defrosted but there are still a few ice crystals in the bag.

Michele you can still cook them again like you would in a fried rice (but in that situation I wouldn't refreeze). If you don't want to cook them within the next couple of days, and I would allow 3 days after they have fully defrosted in working fridge, put a couple of icepacks around the in the fridge which will delaying the "off" period a little more.

Otherwise have a prawn omelette for brekky!! Yummy!

Thanks for your advice. I am assuming since they are precooked they should be okay to add to a dish tonight - however, they are sitting in a bag right now with water in it, it doesn't look very appetizing.

I would drain the water out of the bag irrespective of when you cook them. You don't want them tasting water-logged.

What are you planning on using them in?

Good idea! I was making a dish with fresh spinach, mushrooms, lemon, wine and rice and throw the shrimp in there. I posted the recipe here a while back. It is a quick dish and pretty good!

Are your shrimps precooked? Some of the frozen shrimps are precooked, some are not. (if nothing is said, you can tell by the colour. If precooked, it has a pinky/orangy colour, if fresh, greyish.) If they are precooked, they should be okay also tomorrow. But if they are frozen fresh, they are actually meant to be cooked still frozen. Cook them ASAP!! Then tomorrow you can add them to your dish, just to heat them up not to recook them.
