How to Peel and Devein Shrimp
Although you can purchase peeled and deveined shrimp at the grocery store, you’ll save a couple of bucks if you do it yourself. Here’s how you do it: If the head is still attached, gently twist and remove it. Press your thumb underneath the shrimp where the legs are attached, and gently remove the shell and tail. Run a pairing knife along the back of the shrimp and pull out the gray vein.
How to Tell When Shrimp are Cooked?
Although shrimp cook very quickly sometimes you can undercook your shrimp. Perfectly cooked shrimp are opaque white with pink accents.
Can I use Frozen Shrimp For These Recipes?
Absolutely! Just make sure to thaw the shrimp completely before cooking. To thaw frozen shrimp simply place it in a bowl and refrigerate overnight. To thaw frozen shrimp the same day, place the shrimp in a bowl and cover it with cold water.
