Shrimp is such a dish that many people love to eat, all over the world. There are also many such people who do not enjoy having it either as they do not know what to do with them. There are certain basic fundamentals that you must apply while you are cooking any kind of seafood dishes whether shrimps or clams.

When you go to buy it, you will see that there are two varieties, namely the frozen ones and the fresh ones. You can choose to buy any of the two varieties as per your choice, but it is always recommended that you opt for the fresh ones always.

Then for cleaning them properly, you must hold the creature by the tail with the help of your thumb and the forefingers. Keep the legs of the creature on the upside. Then cut the legs with the help of a knife and once that is done, it is easy to remove the shells. Once the shell is removed, you can take the vein of the shrimp out. For taking the vein out, you must hold the creature tightly in your hand and make a sharp incision. Then simply pull the vein out from the body. This entire process is involved in cleaning the creature in a thorough manner.

Once it is cleaned, you can use it for a variety of preparations like salads, omelettes; cocktails etc and enjoy the delicacy to its core.
