Did you know that shrimp has an intestine that needs to be removed before cooking? Many people don't know this and end up eating the shrimp with the intestine... yuck...
90% of the restaurants that I've gone to, do not remove the intestine. For that reason I stopped ordering shrimp at restaurants. Be aware, of this, whenever you make shrimp for yourself or others take the extra step and remove this intestine strip.
By deveining the shrimp it also adds a unique butterfly look, when cooked its even a bit more plump.
Tip for your next shrimp meal.
Deveining in 2 simple steps:
-Simple cut along the outside of the shrimp, ( sometimes it might be found towards the belly of the shrimp. It is easily noticeable. You will see the strip straight away)
- Use a sharp object such as a knife or toothpick and remove it
when cooked you get a nicer looking shrimp
