Your best bet though is to ask your butcher when the shrimp was thawed. The fresher, the better!
That's what I would do.

I also recently started buying frozen American shrimp rather than what the supermarket carries in the case. The taste and texture are great, plus I just leave the bag in the freezer and use what I need. They defrost in no time at all in a bowl full of cold water.

That's cool Jeeks,
All of the IQF shrimp that I've found here in my neck of Md. are farm raised foriegn import. I'd love to get bags of IQF gulf shrimp. They're so convenient. Hopefully it won't take long for them to show up here.
