HOW TO USE DRIED SHRIMP
There are many ways to use dried shrimp; some require soaking before using, while some do not.
As a rule of thumb, dried shrimp always require pre-soaking before cooking, so they can release more flavor. For soups and braised dishes, you can soak the dried shrimp for a shorter duration (30 mins to 1 hour) because they will loosen up during cooking. If you’re using the dried shrimp in dumpling filling or meatballs, you’ll need to soak them longer (3 hours to overnight).
Some recipes, such as Pad Thai, only require pounding the shrimp to loosen their texture before adding them into the stir fry.
HEATH BENEFITS OF EATING SHRIMP
- Shrimps are the most widely consumed seafood worldwide and are renowned for their sweet, mild taste.
- A fairly low-mercury option, shrimp are also low in fat and calories.
- Despite containing dietary cholesterol, they are considerably lower in saturated fat than other kinds of animal protein.
- Shrimp can also help meet your daily iron requirements.
The best way to store the shrimp is to keep them refrigerated in a container or in the original bag. They can keep for a very long time. You can refrigerate them for a good 4 to 5 months without the color fading or freeze them for longer storage
STEPS TO COOK DRIED SHRIMP
Remove the dried shrimp from the bag. Remember to keep the unused dried shrimp refrigerated.
Soak For 20 to 30 Minutes
Soak the shrimp in water for 20 to 30 minutes before using it in stir-fries. This helps to soften the shrimp and release a bit of flavor.
Enjoy the Flavor
Since salt is added during the dehydrating process, dried shrimp have a bold, salty, and sometimes fishy flavor. They add very distinctive umami, a savory, meaty and full flavor to any dish that calls for it.
California Customers Only: Proposition 65 Information
Proposition 65 is a California law that requires businesses to include a warning to California customers regarding any products that contain measurable amounts of any one of over 1000 chemicals, many of which are naturally occurring.
Some dried seafood and herbs may contain low levels of lead which are often naturally occurring in the earth, in the ocean and in groundwater. These levels are well below FDA's current tolerable intake levels (and much less than the amount shown to cause harm in adults).
Why do I see a Proposition 65 warning on my order?
Because of the unique nature of this state-specific law, we must display a Proposition 65 warning on specific products that are shipped to California. This warning is the same one that is found posted on hotels, stores, gas stations, airports, golf courses, public parks, and other public buildings found throughout the state.
It would be virtually impossible to test every herb and every product we have for all 1000+ substances on the California Proposition 65 list. For this reason, out of an abundance of caution, we have opted to place the Proposition 65 warning for the impacted products we ship to California.
What is California Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 was passed in 1986 with the intention of increasing accountability and preventing people and companies from dumping toxic material in California waters. It is known as "The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986," and it enforces the idea that people have the right to know about the presence of dangerous chemicals in their food and water.
Chemicals recognized by the State of California to contain carcinogens or cause reproductive harm are subject to the requirements of Proposition 65. One of the most cited chemicals is lead, which naturally occurs in soil, water, and the ocean. According to Proposition 65, the content of lead has particularly stringent regulations, requiring a warning if its presence exceeds 0.5 micrograms in any given product per day. This is nearly 1,000 times lower than the amount known to cause reproductive harm according to the federal government.
