There are many people who enjoy shrimp but are intimidated by the initial phases of cooking it. Some of you have only had it at parties or restaurants, but would like to try it out at home. So, we are here to educate you on how to cook shrimp easily and quickly. It's rather simple.
The first thing you will need to know is that there are a ton of ways to prepare shrimp. However, no matter which way you choose to cook them, there are some things you must do first. The first thing that you need to do is shell them. This means that you must take off the heads, as this can really mess up your stomach. You must also take off the legs. Then you must cut a slit lengthwise down the center of it so that you can get the veins out. There is junk in them that can actually make you sick. Once you do this, you can cook them any way that you would like.
Many stores sell pre-prepared shrimp. If this first part makes you squeamish don't hesitate to buy the pre-prepared shrimp.
Cooking the shrimp is definitely the easy part. Some people fry them, which is very delicious but not all that healthy for you. For a more health-conscious dish you can add them to other dishes and just boil them or saute them. Either way is delicious and provides a lot of great, light protein.
