How to Peel Prawns
Knowing how to peel prawns could greatly save your guests time, effort, and very messy fingers! Peeling prawns makes them ideal for stir-frying or for adding to sauces and curries. This ‘how to’ will show you how.
1-Tear off the head. There’s no need to wash away the dark gunge exposed by the head as this is the brown meat and will provide extra flavour to the dish
2- Pull the legs and shell from the prawn, starting from underneath the prawn at the head end. The shell should come off in rings.
3- If desired, leave the tip of the tail on for presentation. Otherwise, pull it off.
Prawns do not take a long time to cook and so are best added towards the end of the frying.
