How to peel and devein shrimp

This is an important step to do before cooking shrimp. While eating the vein is harmless, it can be unpleasant to look at.
Plus, with the shell gone the shrimp is able to absorb more of the butter and seasoning flavors.
  1. Remove the shells from all the shrimp.
  2. Use a paring knife to gently cut open the back of one of the shrimp. Then, lift out the thin, grey vein with the tip of the knife and pull it out with your fingers.
  3. Continue until all of the shrimp have been deveined. Place them in a colander, rinse under cool water, and pat dry with a paper towel or clean cloth.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the best way to store and reheat the meal?
Keep everything covered or in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
Reheat the shrimp by themselves on the stove just until warmed through. Everything else can be reheated in the microwave.
Can I make this shrimp boil recipe ahead of time?
While this dish is best served fresh out of the oven, there are a couple of things you can do to save time:
  • Prep the ingredients up to 24 hours beforehand and keep in the refrigerator until you’re ready to cook. Cover the potatoes with cold water to remove excess starch.
  • Steam the potatoes and corn in the microwave instead of boiling. Then continue the recipe as directed.

If you want to add side dishes, keep them simple. A green salad or homemade cornbread is all you need to complete this meal.
