Shrimp are easy to cook (and even easier to eat). However, if you’ve ever purchased shrimp with the heads and/or tails still attached, you know that preparing unprocessed shrimp can be a bit of an ordeal if you haven’t done it before.
(Please see my humorous true story about my early battles with head-on shrimp: The Jumbo Shrimp Death March: A Culinary Catastrophe With a Side of Remoulade.)
However, buying shrimp this way can be a great way to save money and get more shrimp for your buck. Also, if you have access to seafood at your local farmer’s market or you have a fisherman in your family, learning how to prepare fresh, unprocessed shrimp can really come in handy.
Luckily, removing the head and tail of shrimp is far easier than it looks, as you can see in our shrimp preparation video below which shares a few quick tips to help you learn how to do this with grace and ease.
Bring on the grilled shrimp, Spanish paella, fried shrimp, and shrimp salad! Let the eating begin!
