How to peel and devein shrimp:

Use kitchen shears to cut along the top of the shrimp. Squeeze the tail and gently pull it off, and then peel back the shell. Pull the now exposed “vein” from the shrimp and put it on a paper towel. Be sure to rinse the shrimp under cool water afterwards, to ensure that all the unwanted debris gets washed away.
