You Will Need
- Shrimp, either raw or cooked
- And a small paring knife
Slice the shell
Slice the fat end of the shrimp shell and pull it off the meat. Whether you leave the tail on depends on how you're going to use the shrimp.
Expose the vein
Hold the shrimp in one hand and run the blade of the paring knife along the center of the spine, exposing the vein. Don't cut too deep.
Use the blade of the knife to scrape the black or greenish gook from the shrimp. Rinse and wipe off the knife--you're now ready to make another shrimp shine.
