Full Recipe:


I bought some super-fresh jumbo shrimp to make this dish and they made all the difference! Don’t use frozen precooked shrimp to make this recipe, the taste and texture will be subpar.

Cleaning, or deveining shrimp can seem a bit intimidating so I wanted to go over the process.

Start by removing the shell. You can peel it off from the bottom where the little swimmeretes are.
Once the shell is removed use a small knife to make a roughly 1/4″ deep cut down the top of the shrimp.
Now you should be able to see a small vein which you can pull out using your fingers.
That’s it! If you’re having difficulty you can cut a bit deeper and use a knife to help remove the “vein” which is actually the shrimp’s digestive tract.
