This vein may have gritty remains and is frequently removed for aesthetic and hygiene reasons. 

If using frozen shrimp, defrost them thoroughly before peeling and deveining. Place the frozen shrimp in a basin of cold water for approximately 15-20 minutes or until completely thawed. 

Drain the shrimp and pat them dry using paper towels once they have melted.
