Jim Davis: Hi! Chef Jim Davis here for Harris Teeter. I am going to show now how to devein a shrimp.
Usually, we have to first peel them, and we will start that by peeling off, starting with the legs and pulling off a segment, and going all the way down to the tail show. You want to leave the tail show on like that. This is a perfectly peeled shrimp.
To remove the vein, we are going to take our pairing knife and just make a small cut around the back of the shrimp and expose this little black thing. And here, and I use a skewer to get down in, to take that out. So then, now I have got my shrimp deveined. That's how you devein a shrimp.
I am going to show you next how to butterfly a shrimp.
