Peeling and Deveining Shrimp in 9 Easy Steps

Disclaimer: I’m spoiled and live in coastal Florida where local shrimp are available for most of the year. But still…

We live in a world of convenience and short cuts. Sometimes those convenient little short cuts, especially in the kitchen, lead to inferior outcomes. One of my least favorite time savers is frozen peeled and deveined shrimp. I understand why some shoppers gravitate toward the frozen crustaceans, I really do. Doing it yourself is a bit messy and labor intensive, but good food is worth the effort. If you’re a foodie, and I’m pretty sure you are, take the time to do it with fresh, local shrimp.  I had my honey snap a bunch of photos as I peeled and deveined a shrimp that I got at my local farmer’s market. This is the resulting step-by-step collage of the process.
