A step by step guide to ensure the fresh prawns you buy, are ready and safe to eat.
To remove shell: First, pull off the legs of the fresh prawn and peel back the shell using your thumb & forefinger. You may leave the tail on to use as a bit of a “handle” when eating by hand, however, it is recommended to remove them if using the prawns in a larger dish.
Tip: To store your prawns before cooking, i.e. you’re not cooking them straight away, place them in a bowl of ice or put them in the fridge, this will help keep them fresh.
