1.Observe the color and shape of the dried shrimp: high-quality fresh dried shrimp have a transparent or light yellow color, with intact heads and tails; those that are incomplete are not recommended for purchase.
2.Check the dryness or moisture of the dried shrimp: touch the dried shrimp with your hand or pinch it slightly. Good dried shrimp should be dry, otherwise, it may become sticky and prone to spoilage.
3.Smell the aroma: high-quality dried shrimp has a seafood fragrance with a slightly fishy smell. If there is a foul odor or irritating smell, it may indicate spoilage or processing.
