I buy my shrimp raw and they are either still frozen or already thawed. While there are some places where I live that I can get fresh (and sometimes even live shrimp), usually it is frozen. This is ok, because frozen shrimp can still result in a peel and eat shrimp that tastes great and has a very good texture.
