How to Clean Shrimp

Easiest:  Hold shrimp by back and pull off legs.  Then pull shell off the back, leaving the tail on.  Hold shrimp belly down in your and with back facing out and cut a slit down the back length of the shrimp. Rinse with water to remove vein.

 

More advanced options:

Step 1

1. Devein the shrimp by peeling the shell from it. Use a paring knife to make a shallow slit along the back from the head end to the tail end. Look for the black sand vein that runs along the center of the back. If the vein is there, use the tip of the knife to carefully remove and discard it, as shown. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water.

Step 2

2. If desired, halve deveined shrimp by placing the shrimp, front side down, on a cutting board. Cut all the way through the shrimp lengthwise, making two pieces.
