Author: ZAIiX9xrriM
It’s just a short video on how to peel a prawn, in case you were clueless!
  • A prawn
  1. Rip off the head.
  2. Part the legs and start to peel back the shell.
  3. When you get to the segment nearest the tail, split it with your thumbnails and you should be able to remove the complete shell with the tail.
  4. If you can see a black streak running down the back of the prawn, run a knife along it and remove the vein.
  5. Rinse in cold water.
