The freezing process crystallizes moisture in the shrimp's body and explodes cells, etc. leading to flavor loss. This is inevitable in the freezing process. You can minimize the flavor loss by buying the frozen shrimp in as whole a condition as you can. My preference would be whole, not de-veined with head on.

Having said that, even those of us fortunate enough to have access to fresh still by frozen from time to time for convenience. Trade-offs.
