Prawns are my favorite. For those who love eating seafood, prawns are a treat. Like any other seafood, prawns can also be cooked in a varied number of ways. They can be grilled, broiled, fried, or steamed. You can either cook them with the vein or without it based on personal choice and taste. Similarly it can be cooked with or without the shell. They are used to make savory dishes that form a part of the main course.
