Ok this is an emergency

I forgot i defrost my prawns, left it in the sink under cold running tap water for 5 mins. Then opened it up, put it in a boiling water for 4 mins, then rinsed it with freezing cold water for 2 mins.

I’ve now just fried it with some veg .... If i add the prawns to my cous cous and eat it, am i going to get sick ?

i feel like i will, shall i just bin it and order a pizza ? Seafood is not to be messed with

As long as they are cooked properly you will be fine.

They’re fine! Just heat them all the way through.

No i don’t think i’m pregnant, i’m just a silly university student who thought it’d be a good idea to make dinner at midnight 🙄

Trying a prawn doesn’t sound like a good idea if im afraid that eating them will poison me ... I’ll just keep it on a low heat i guess

Defrosting with cold water is fine and doesn’t take much time if you forget to defrost in fridge. I personally wouldn’t touch them after you put in boiling water then in freezing water. The shrimp would have started to cook at that stage and there is a danger of bacteria. Next time just defrost in very cold water, it takes less than 10 minutes.

I often have to cook them from frozen blush I haven't died yet though your experience may be different 😅

If you aren't pregnant stop worrying.
Cook them properly so they are very hot.
