    Hi Anna,Sorry I didn’t get back to you faster! Did your hbsaund give you a lesson in de-veining? He certainly should know! If not, here’s what you do: Hold your peeled shrimp in one hand, hold a small, sharp knife in the other. Run knife down the back of the shrimp, right down the middle, from head to tail. It will be easy to follow the line as it will be darker than the rest of the shrimp that dark stuff is what you’re going to take out. You only need to cut down just a bit to make a slit that will release the vein. Once it’s open place the tip of your knife under the dark vein at the head end and pull up it will most likely come out in one long, slightly gross piece. Flick that thing in the garbage! I always rinse my de-veined shrimp in cold water to remove any little bits that are clinging on.It sounds fussy but once you get the knack for it, it goes very fast. I promise! Let me know how it goes!
