How to Devein Shrimp

Keep in mind that you can eat shrimp veined or deveined. Even better yet you can have your local fish monger devein them for you.

Make an incision along the backside of the shrimp using either a pair of scissors or a serrated knife. Just follow the intestinal track the length of the shrimp (yes, it is what you think it is). Remove the 'vein' and rinse shrimp under cold water leaving shells intact. That's it!
