The Perfect Cooking Temps, Times for Shrimp and Salmon

One of the hardest things to do when cooking seafood is to get the cooking time and temperatures just right. If you don't cook seafood long enough you run the risk of it being underdone and if you cook it too long seafood will become rubbery. 

We found the perfect cooking times and temperatures for cooking shrimp and salmon, two foods that are hard to get just right. 

A study in the February 2013 Journal of Food Science listed the following optimal cooking times for shrimp and salmon. 

• Boiling Extra Jumbo Shrimp—1 minute and 40 seconds
• Baking Extra Jumbo Shrimp—3 minutes and 53 seconds
• Boiling Colossal Shrimp—2 minutes and 39 seconds
• Baking Colossal Shrimp—6 minutes and 18 seconds 
• Baking Salmon—18 minutes and 52 seconds
• Pan Frying Salmon—6 minutes and 39 seconds

According to researchers, all of the products reached the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended internal temperature necessary for destroying salmonella, which is 145.4 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 seconds. Product quality was based on color, texture, juiciness, and weight.

Salmon is best baked at 350 degrees according to eHow.
