Money Saving Tip: Why You Should Learn to Peel Your Own Shrimp

Did you know that you can save money by shopping for your shrimp with the shells still on? That’s right! Because cleaned shrimp mean extra work and higher costs for the company that packages the seafood, you’re going to pay a higher price for them.

Instead, you can buy whole prawns and shrimp and clean them yourself. This video shows you how to remove the shell, tail, and vein with just your bare hands and a knife. It’s a little extra effort, but you can peel all the shrimp for your shrimp cocktail platter and save a little money to spend on the cocktail sauce!
