I cleaned and de-veined my first wild-caught Alaskan colossal shrimp. Yay, Me! It was super easy and actually entertaining. Not to gross anyone out, but it reminded me of a science lab dissection. I know you can't eat your dissection, but you see my comparison, right? M gave me a tutorial; and here's one you can follow. Hands down, I would much rather devein shrimp, than handle and cut raw chicken.
After the "dissection," I seasoned the shrimp and added freshly squeezed lemon juice, while M cooked polenta and topped it with grated cheddar cheese. We served our lemon shrimp over cheesy polenta with Brussels sprouts.
