Recipe Notes

How to prepare raw shrimp:

  1. Peel the shrimp by starting underneath where their legs are attached. Peel off the shell and if you like, leave the last tail segment on for looks. This makes for a beautiful presentation.
  2. Devein by making a shallow slit down the middle of the back to expose the black vein.
  3. Lift out the black vein with the point of a paring knife and discard.
  4. Continue to do the same step with the underneath section of the shrimp to remove the black vein.
  5. Now your shrimp is ready to cook.
