I'm roasting some shrimp to serve cold with romesco -- the following day. How should I store them in the fridge overnight? In Tupperware? On a plate under foil or plastic wrap? I'm not going to give my office food poisoning, am I?
In ice water in the fridge
Personally I would put them in a covered container in the fridge. You should be fine
If they are roasted then the ice water will not work. If they have been boiled then yes, ice water with a slice or two of lemon is always good

Roasted shrimp will be fine in the refrigerator overnight. In a container or on a covered plate--either way will be fine.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
