How do they do it?

We've sometimes eaten shrimp in "nice" restaurants, and found that the shrimp had a slight iodine taste -- which we had thought meant it may be getting a bit "past".

However, we've enjoyed various shrimp dishes in several Chinese restaurants and have NEVER experienced anything but nice, fresh tasting shrimp.

How do they do it? Someone suggested that they may wash the shrimp in milk first. Does anyone know?

We even had some this noon, in fact, and I asked the smiling waiter how they always have such good-tasting shrimp. He just shrugged and smiled, and said "You like shrimp. We make it good for you!" Not much help!
