'Live' Spotted Prawns - Part 2

Charles Yu | May 13, 201505:04 PM

When I posted on this board a few weeks ago announcing the arrival of this year's 'BC' Spotted ( Bontan? ) Prawns season. The posting sparked off a chain of unexpected debates about the exact origin of the crustacean.

Well fellow hounds, today, I bought another bunch of a 'different' varietal of Spotted Prawns from T&T. Its on special at an attractive $18.88 per pound! Smaller in size than the previous 'BC' version, this 'sweeter' varietal has more pronounced spots on the shell.
Be it "BC", "US West Coast" or "Florida"? I am not going to speculate nor do I care. Main thing is they are alive and fresh and tasted so yummy when cooked! ( should have save a few for sashimi! Schucks!! ).

I just boiled them in salted water and ate them with a 'Scallion, ginger, cilantro, oil and soya sauce dip'
