    I don't know of anyone who doesn't just pick them up by the tail.

    If you are concerned, the best thing to do is wait a moment to see how your hosts, or others, eat them.

    Here is my take - when served in a shrimp cocktail - pick them up by the tail and eat. If they are served on any kind of
    Plate like scampi - use a knife and fork excpetion being: If it is like BBQ shrimp served in New Orleans - where they come with tails AND heads - and you are given a bib - then you go at with BOTH hands. Enjoy.!

    I always grab mine by the tail and eat it that way, continuing to hold the tail until that's all that's left. Then put the tail off to the side of your plate.
