Never de-veined a shrimp before...usually bought ready to eat if I bought it at all. I would have loved more information, though. It didn't seem to cover the differences. Was that raw shrimp or cooked shrimp?

I lived near Charleston, SC for more than 16 years and got very good at cleaning shrimp. But it is a pain and I was so hoping this video would give a quicker way of doing this tedious but rewarding chore. No such luck. I suppose it (the video)is informative for novices. Oh, well...
