love shrimp. I don't want to going into a Bubba Gump shrimp rant here, but I love shrimp. Fresh shrimp, the ones you have to peel or pay to have peeled, not the pre-peeled frozen ones. Oh no.
I've peeled more than my fair share, not sure how fair it is, but anyway. One day I'm standing there peeling and deveining, deveining and peeling a couple pounds of large 21-25 count shrimp, thinking, there has GOT to be a better way.
I've try many different methods and tools over the years and it has been my experience the classic red peeler is the "best" way to go. I was just feed up with having the shrimp not peel completely, or get stuck on the peeler, then you have to adjust the peeler in the hand or set it down and use both hands to get the job done. That's when it hit me, if the peeler was mounted somehow and I didn't have to hold it, I could use two hands to peel and de-vein the shrimp like a champ.
The first thing I did, after I ate dinner of course, was go online and do some research. Nothing close to my idea. So I thought about the design and how it would function. I made some drawings, then headed out to the garage. My first three ideas/prototypes were completely different from the production model. Its a long process of trial and error. Finally I had a simple, yet functional prototype that was ready for production.
The Shrimp Peeler Helper is made here in the USA out of plant based plastics in our little home workshop.
