Note: Peterson writes, "You need to devein shrimp only if the intestine
is full of grit. To see if deveining is necessary, devein a couple
of shrimp and inspect the intestines. If they are clean, don't bother
with the rest. If the shrimp have heads, twist them off....Peel
off the shells (optional).
If you do need to devein, cut down the
back of the shrimp with a small paring knife, exposing the 'vein'
(actually, the intestine). Pull the intestine out with the knife."
