• The smell of the shrimp should be very mild, as well as the smell of the sea.
• Pay attention to the bark too, it must be shiny and stick to the animal. If it is loosening it is a sign that it is not fresh. And don't forget that when you buy two kilos of shrimp in shell, when you remove the shell, only one kilo will be left.
• If you are looking for a tasty shrimp, always buy with the shell, since when frozen with the shell it loses much of the flavor.
• Now if you don't have fresh shrimp available in your area, the tip to buy is to grasp the shrimp packaging to make sure it is firm.
