How to Devein Raw Shrimp
To devein raw shrimp, first remove the outer shell. Then make a lengthwise shallow cut on the outer curve of the shrimp to expose the black vein. Loosen the vein with the tip of a sharp knife, then pull with your fingers to remove.
For added heat, season with hot pepper sauce to taste.
