Prawns Cooking Tips
Now, as seafood
Prawns are a great source of high-quality protein and have several important vitamins and minerals that support good health. Calorie counters can rejoice, as these crustaceans are low in calories and contain no carbohydrates. They provide significant amounts of vitamin B as well as iron, which helps in red blood cell production and strengthening the immune system.
How to keep prawns fresh
Here are some handy tips to keep prawns fresh and keep them tasting great. It is always best to buy seafood as close to use as possible, and prawns are no different. When storing them, leave prawns in their shell for maximum freshness. Store them in an airtight container or cover them tightly in plastic wrap while keeping them in the freezer or fridge. We recommend refrigerating fresh prawns for up to 3 days and frozen for up to 3 months.
How to cook prawns
Prawns are an extremely versatile and easy to cook. They are well-suited for a variety of cooking methods from pan frying to boiling, barbecued or even in salads. The first thing to decide when preparing prawns for cooking is whether to leave the shell on or off. Leaving the shells on help the prawns retain moisture better and is best kept on in a dish where they are the main ingredient. If the prawns are going to be part of a larger dish like soup, perhaps consider removing the shells, head, tails and legs before cooking so that it is easier to eat! When cooking prawns, colour equals to flavour! Once the shells turn bright red and the flesh is no longer glassy, they are good to go.
