It looks so great. I wonder if i could replace the prawns with shrimps which are smaller that the ones on this pic. The prawn price in poland is 40usd/kg and shrimps not even 20usd/kg. You cant buy it fresh here, frozen version only.
It's yummie, and besides the taste and the way how it looks like its freaking healthy.

was just wondering, how come restaurants cook prawn with only the last portion of the shell untouched? All other parts of the shell are peeled off, except the last 1 and the tail. Why? for easier to take?

Yummy yummy prawns!

Girls that can cook is better than girls that have the look.. off course got look and can cook better ler.

Kampungkai, that is for the customers to not need using hands when eating the prawns but still want to make the prawns look nice.

ShadowFox said...

Well, I still think it's better to peel off at least the head,I can't stand the 'inside' of the prawns... yucks... you don't know what they've been eating... worms, fish shit, etc...

Besides gutting the prawns, i'll shell it and stop at the tail, and cut open the back from the front and remove the long strand of shit first before I cook the prawns.

It's actually quite popular now in some places in KL where people eat dancing prawns. It's disgusting because they use live small transparent freshwater prawns and just drop them on top of the fried veges. You eat the prawns live. Very dirty , extremely unhygenic.

That f*cking explains WHY THE HELL I CANNOT FIND LIVE FRESHWATER PRAWNS anymore for my fishies to eat!

Those suppliers are no longer selling to the local fish shops, but to restaurants instead!

ShaolinTiger said...

Prawn is my favourite! Especially large ones. I used to cut down on them because of the cholesterol. But guess what? Commenting here made me look up facts about cholesterol in prawns and here the link that made me happy

http://www.apfa.com.au/media/article.cfm?mediaid=43

It turns out that prawns have virtually no saturated fat. Well, maybe this material is biased since it was published by Australian Prawn Farmers Association but at least it gives motivation to dig up more good facts about prawns, which looks promising.

In the meantime, I'm going to continue eating prawns in moderation.
