How To Peel And Devein Shrimp

What's commonly known as the "vein" on a shrimp is actually its digestive tract, which happens to be quite harmless, despite its unappetizing appearance. Usually seen as a thin black cord, it might be transparent or black only in spots if the shrimp has not eaten much. There may also be sand in the "vein" which would result in a gritty taste. Removing it is a matter of personal preference and is usually done for presentation rather than taste.

Note: Keep shrimp in a bowl of cool water until you are ready to cook it.

To start, remove the shell by holding the shrimp with its legs facing you, and cut the shell between them with a paring knife or scissors starting at the neck and finishing just past the last pair of legs. Do not cut all the way through the tail. Next, pull the top pair of legs up and back to remove them from the meat of the shrimp. Finally, with your finger between the shell and the shrimp meat you may now isolate the meat by breaking the shell away at the tail. Leaving the tail on is optional. Most shrimp also come headless but if they have the head simply cut it off before starting this process.

Your now ready to devein your shrimp. Once the shell has been removed the vein will be exposed on the back of the shrimp. If it isn't, run the tip of a small knife down the center of the back to expose it. Once the vein is visible, pull it out with the tip of a knife or a toothpick. You may even be able to pinch the tail end using your fingers and pull it out without having to make a slit with the knife.

Once you have removed the vein and rinsed the shrimp, it will be ready for your final preparation.

How to clean fresh oysters

Scrub the oysters and place them in a large bowl. Make sure to discard all broken shells or oysters that won't close. Fill the bowl with enough cold water to cover the oysters. Shake in the cornmeal and stir. Let the oysters sit for 3 to 6 hours, to let them purge any sand. Remove the oysters from the water and rinse thoroughly.
