- Devein the prawn before you cook it. Deveining prawn is very easy to do. While prawns can be cooked and eaten with or without the vein, most people remove it. This is more for presentation rather than taste, but leaving the vein in can result in a gritty taste when it is bitten into. Just remember, the vein is the digestive tract of the prawn, so more times than not, you will probably want to remove it.
