How to de-vein shrimps
Avoid using a knife when cutting the shell of the shrimp, the shell is tough and slippery and accidents do happen. The tricks in cleaning shrimps is by inserting the tip of your kitchen shears or scissors at the open end of the outer curve. Cut the shell all the way to the tail end. Peel away the shell, and use a toothpick to remove the dark vein along the back. It’s alright to leave the lighter vein on the inner curve of the shrimp, that’s the digestive tract. But you need to get rid of the dark one because that’s the waste tract.
