    Default Shrimp Shit

    Did you know that green-black streak running through the back of a shrimp is poo? I didn't. Thank goodness shrimp don't eat corn.

    Yeah--I'm amused that it's called "de-veining." It'd be called "disemboweling" for any other critter.

    I'm also interested that some people consider de-veining completely optional. Um......okay....

    Oh, they eat stuff that is so much worse that if you knew you may never want to eat them again.

    The lazy way is much easier than this - you just twist the heads off and toss them in some water. Provided they're fresh, just agitate the water and the gunk will come out. At least this works with fresh prawns... The water looks pretty nasty afterward, just rinse them down real good and cook them up...

    It's disturbing when it's cooked already and it's half removed...and you can SEE it.

    I wonder what it would be like to have my poo run along my spine. If the shrimps don't poo for a long time, will the poo reach their heads and go into their brains and make them go all mutant-ninja-shrimp?

    Shrimp poo, ugh.

    I never caught onto eating lobster guts either. Or eating crabs WITH their shells.

    I felt the same disgust that I occasionally feel when I'm eating meat and it tastes too meaty. I was happily chomping along when the person I was with was like "Eww they didn't devein the shrimp!" and then went on to enlighten me. I left one shrimp floating in the bowl. I guess I wasn't that disgusted.

    I know what you mean. Sometimes it tastes like ... well, flesh.

    I could easily be a vegetarian except that I'd get very very fat! I love cheese and grains.

    No sushi eaters here then? No drinkers of raw eggs? No steak tartare fans?

    Nothing raw, nope. I like sushi vegetarian or with smoked eel and cooked crab and shrimp, but I can't bring myself to eat raw meat of any kind. I don't even like bloody cooked steak.

    I love sushi. Raw, cooked, whatever, I love it all. In fact, I might go get some for lunch today, if I can't find anything to put together for lunch today.

    Not really into raw beef, but a rare steak is good.
