My daughter had me convinced I’m lazy because I don’t remove them beforehand; but I’m with you, Jaden! It’s WORK to take them off before cooking–and a pointless waste of time, in my opinion–but it’s pure pleasure popping the meat out of the tails while eating. I actually love that sensation, in fact.
On the other hand, I can’t eat shrimp that still have their LEGS on. Ewwww, that creeps me out just to think about it, and I’ve felt that way since a little girl. So shells off but tails on, and I’ll be very happy, thank you!.
And speaking of happy, this recipe looks great; can’t wait to try it. I’ve only just stumbled on your site, BTW, and LOVE it (also love your name)! Thanks for all the lovely recipes (especially the no-kneed breads). Can’t wait to dive in.

Love having a natural handle and just pulling the meat out with my teeth. No need to dirty any silverware.

Suck, lick, slurp, tear with your teeth, and keep at it until you’re up to your elbows in juice. That’s the only way to eat shrimp. The flavors seep right through the shell, so nothing’s lost.

I’m new to your site and have to say I’m really impressed. I’ve already marked quite a few recipes I want to try. Thanks for all the wonderful work.

Ok, to the real reason for commenting (I REALLY want that jam (^.^) Tail on! I hate seeing poor naked shrimp, how much indignity does a poor shrimp have to take? It’s indecent to leave a shrimp’s butt uncovered! Ok, ok. Enough hyperbole let me explain. I’m Asian so I grew up with shrimp with tail on. Taking the tail off is usually seen as unattractive is the answer I got when I asked about it when I was little. I also have to say I love actually eating the little shelled part left over depending on the recipe. Sometimes this piece becomes quite crunchy and full of umami from the shrimp and/or flavors of the dish. The best is when you make ebi-fry or shrimp tempura that last bit with the batter and shell is extra yummy. Hey, it’s calcium and I need all I can get since I don’t drink milk too often.

honey, I totally agree with you!!! I crunch through on the shell. esp deep fried shrimp ~jaden

PS: I bet the peach jam would be great with shrimp :)

I’m Vietnamese and learned that the shrimp tastes better and is less likely to overcook if you leave the shell on. But they always want the shrimp shelled and with the tails removed. And of course I’m the only one that seems to know how to devein =( Now that I’m typing this, I think I’ve just realized that they’re pretty stinking lazy =(
