How to tell if prawns are fresh

You don’t need to be an expert fisherman to recognize a fresh product, with our tips you will be able to choose the best prawns. The first thing to look at is the head, which deteriorates easily, contains viscera and coral, so important for the good final flavor of the dish. So make sure that the prawn heads have a nice homogeneous and brilliant colorslightly softer, a little translucenton queues, of which the pulp must be visible. They must not have dark spots on the head, much less on the tail, nor a white film on the surface: in the first case the prawns are not fresh, in the second they are dry, poorly preserved.

How to clean shrimp

Cleaning the prawns is a delicate operation, but necessary for the perfect outcome of your dishes. Detach the head to the prawns, remove the gut using tweezers or pulling it gently with your fingers and shelled.
