I have cooked shrimp leftover from last night. Can they be frozen without ruining the texture?

    You can, but the texture will suffer.

      If their aren't too many put them in the fridge. They'll keep for a couple days. Add them to a nice fluffy omelet with a pinch of fine chopped or dried tarragon. Just a few drops of fresh squeezed lemon juice on the omelet when you serve it.

          Thanks everyone. I kept it in the fridge and served it today. It went fast, so I guess it was good.
