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.

Ginger - mincing

Remove the skin of the ginger and thinly slice, gradually sliding and stacking the slices. Then mince the ginger into fine pieces, and slice again finely at right angles.

Japanese long onion - finely chopped

Remove the roots of the Japanese long onion, and insert vertical cuts. Then chop up finely at right angles from end to end.
