Method of deveining and peeling jumbo prawn

  • Wash prawns thoroughly.
  • Take a sharp knife and first remove the head.
  • Give a little cut and slowly and carefully start peeling the outer shell and legs. You have to apply little pressure as the shell is quiet hard. Peel upto the end but keep the tail on. It gives the prawn nice look and helps to eat by holding them.
  • Remove the pointed part which is called telson.
    Deveining is also very important step to do. Make a slit along the shrimp’s back.  Don’t give a deep incision. Open up and as you can see a black vein is visible. It’s called digestive tract. Pull it out slowly. Cut till the end before the tail and remove the remaining vein. Your butterfly prawn is ready.

    Benifit of the deveining is it prevents the prawn from curling. You can also keep the shell aside to make a great prawn stock.
