Notes

How to de-vein shrimp: Use a small scissors (manicure scissors are quite handy) with a point to slit the back side of the shrimp. As you slit the shells you will cut into the meat a bit exposing the vein. Use the tip of the scissors to lift the vein, then remove with your fingers and discard.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS:

Serve Hot with sweet and sour sauce
