The Shrimp Peeler Helper is easy to assemble and use. It comes with two pieces total; one plastic base, and a rubber mat.
To assemble, simply slide a red shrimp peeler into the top of the and bam, your done! You're now ready to peel and devein shrimp.
Before you begin peeling, get your work station set up. The Shrimp Peeler Helper is designed to go between two bowls or two plates, one on each side of the base. This allows you to quick drop the shrimp into one and the peel into the other. The unit can accommodate lots of different size bowls and plates depending on the quantity of shrimp you need to peel and devein.
If you have ever used a red peeler, then you are ahead of the curve. If not, it will take a few shrimp to get the hang of it. First grab a shrimp and with the head removed, guide the shrimp down onto the peeler. The peeler point goes between the shell and the meat of the shrimp on the back side. Next glide the shrimp down to the base of the peeler and separate the shell and meat as you go.
Once you have all of your shrimp peeled and deveined you will need to wash them. Using running water rinse the shrimp one at a time. As you clean them run your thumb over the back of the shrimp to be sure they are completely de-veined. You are now minutes away from eating shrimp!
The Shrimp Peeler Helper can now be easily cleaned using soap and water, then air dried.

This post is all about giving the red plastic shrimp peeler and deveiner its due. If you have been peeling and deveining shrimp since you were knee high to a grass hopper, like myself, then there is a good chance you have used a red shrimp peeler. It's a classic!
That's because it rules all other methods. It's the best, at least in our opinion, at removing shrimp shells and de-veining them at the same time. Just so we are clear, the Shrimp Peeler Helper is an accessory to the plastic peeler and it makes it even quicker and easier to prepare shrimp. The peeler is the star.
The classic red shrimp knife, as some people call it, hasn't changed much in 3 or 4 decades. That's all changing now, more people are cleaning their own fresh caught and/or bought shrimp. The masses are moving toward organic, fresh, free range, and never frozen foods across the board.
Because of this new found interest, the plastic peelers are starting to come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. You no longer have to choose red. They come in clear, green, black, turquoise, and even metal. Our favorite is still red. It's a classic!
Thank you for reading,
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.
