You can find cooked nigiri shrimp in some Asian grocery stores. You can also cook them yourself. To do this, preferably choose large peeled tiger prawns. Insert small bamboo skewers along the back of each shrimp to straighten them. Cook for a few minutes in boiling water. Remove from skewers. Make an incision through the belly of each shrimp to unfold them, but don’t cut through shrimp.
