How long to cook Internal Temperature

What's the Right Internal Temperature to Cook Shrimp?

Technically, all shellfish should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees. However, even the USDA acknowledges that it's hard to take the temperature of a shrimp; many people don't even own a temperature probe skinny enough to slide easily into the middle of a single shrimp and get an accurate reading. That's why the guideline for shrimp doneness uses visual cues: You should cook shrimp and other shellfish until white and opaque. In the case of shrimp, you'll also see its color change as you cook it. When it's pink or red with no hints of gray, it's OK to eat.
