After a post in Weekends in a French Kitchen, there was some talk amongst the bloggers about how to peel and eat heads-on shrimp. I decided I should rope in the Kitchen Elves for a tutorial. Here we go...
A quick note on preparation: I boiled these with some Old Bay, sprinkled them with more Old Bay and a dash of salt, and drizzled them with melted butter. Then the Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf squeezed fresh lemon juice over the top.
Okay. Ready? You have your whole shrimp, head and all...
Use your fingers to peel down one side; the legs will stay connected to one side or other other. As you peel down - towards the tail - you'll be able to pull that tail off easily.
Here you go. All set to eat!
The remains of our heads-on shrimp feast and the end of my tutorial. I hope you try it and enjoy the shrimp.
