Prawns are a favourite in our house.
Unfortunately, here in the UK most prawns are available from frozen.
It is, therefore, important to know how to treat them.
When preparing prawns, either raw or already cooked but defrosted from frozen state must be cleaned and wash using very salty water. They then should be rinsed in plain water with a spritz of lemon juice.
The lemon juice will remove any freezing preservatives as well as any off flavour!
