Have you ever eaten shrimp and noticed a thin black strip along their back?
The technique to remove this strip is called deveining, but it’s actually not a vein: it’s the shrimp’s digestive tract, and the dark shade is from grit in the tract. The “vein” isn’t harmful if eaten.
It’s not essential to devein shrimp, but for some people, it is aesthetically pleasing to remove the thin black strip found in them.
