To Boil Freshly-Caught Shrimps

Method

Throw the shrimps into boiling salted water, and keep them boiling for about 5 min. Care should be taken that they are not overboiled, as they then become tasteless and indigestible; they are done when they begin to change colour.

To Shell Shrimps

Take the head between the right thumb and forefinger and with the left forefinger and thumbnail raise on each side the shell of the tail, pinch the tail, and the shell will at once separate.
