Look what my neighbour gave me.
Freshly caught today. I poached them, shucked them and are now in the fridge ready for a salad.
These prawns were caught just off the waters of Powell River. These little guys are pink when caught and remain pink after cooking. They are very prickly with a tougher skin than their warm water cousins. Once cooked their texture is not quite as firm as other prawns and shrimp but just as delicious with a sweet buttery flavour.
