Cooking Basics

Shrimp - deveining

Shrimp or prawns have a dark-colored intestinal tract (often called a vein) running down the length of their back, this needs to be removed. For shrimps in shells, before removing the shell, place a toothpick into the 2nd to 3rd abdominal segment from the head and gently remove this. By slightly bending the back this process is made easier. For headless shrimp, quite often the intestinal tract has been removed with the head.

Shrimp - peeling

When deep-frying shrimp or prawns, quite often the tail is left and only the shell is removed. Peel the shell off from the head while making sure that the last abdominal segment to which the tail is attached remains intact. When the shell is peeled off, the legs will also be removed.

Cabbage - roughly chopped

Separate the leaves, place the knife diagonally along the core to remove. Cut the leaves in half lengthwise, stack, and then cut into 3 - 4 cm (1.2 to 1.6 in.) wide strips.

Snow peas - removing stems and strings

Fold the stem over towards the straighter side of the snow pea and then pull this off along the length of this straighter side to remove the stem and string.
