Tenina’s Tips

Deciding on whether to cook prawns with the head and shell on or off is a

personal decision. If you choose to cook without the shell, you will find the shell

is a little easier to remove if the prawn is still slightly frozen. However, fresh

prawns will always have more flavour than frozen. First remove the head by

twisting it off. Next remove the legs, then, holding the prawn by its tail, pull the

shell from the body. At this point you can choose to de-vein the prawn. This is

done by taking a thin, sharp knife and running it along the vein. Run the prawn

under cold water and the vein should wash away.
