Remove my prawns' shells?

1newyorkguy | Jul 22, 2009 01:00 AM

I have some beautiful prawns...what are your thoughts on sauteing with or without their shells on?

I know the shells help keep moisture and possibly flavor in...but the last time I cooked them with the shells on, I seasoned them well, but that all seasoning went away when I had to de-shell them prior to eating (which made for a quite messy time too).

Full disclosure: I probably will have some thai chili peppers in with them and then deglaze with some tequila while the prawns are still in there.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
