Is it difficult to clean shrimp? This hack will make your life easier

Must Try

There are those prep jobs in the kitchen that you can dread in the morning. The same goes for cleaning shrimp. Because once you’ve mastered peeling, there’s the next obstacle: the intestinal tract. That hard life is now a thing of the past.

We have found the ultimate hack to clean your shrimp with a lot of flexibility and little time.

How to clean shrimp

It should be clear by now: at Culy we are not averse to a good hack every now and then. After all, it makes your life in the kitchen a lot smoother, plus more time for other dishes.

For example, we now cut out the heart of the tomato in the blink of an eye, we clean the squid with two fingers in our nose – proverbial of course – and we free green beans, celery and other vegetables from their dental floss while whistling .

The hack

But then that intestinal tract of that large shrimp. Not too appetizing to find on your plate, let alone taste it between your teeth.

With some relief, we stumbled upon cookbook author Hot Thai Kitchen’s Instagram account, featuring countless Thai recipes to make you incredibly hungry. But in addition, we found a pearl that – to be honest – we have already looked at several times.


Because as with many hacks, the following also applies to this one: why didn’t we come up with this ourselves? So simple and so effective. It goes like this: take your shrimp (with shell or without), a toothpick, and insert it into the second ‘connecting piece’ from the tail just below the intestinal tract. And then it’s simple: pop it up and pull it out in one go.
