Keeping Spot Prawns Fresh [split from Ontario]
Definetly off topic:
I bought live Spot Prawns today at Sunny Supermarket, though I do not believe we will be eating them till tomorrow.
I was debating whether to make another trek there again tomorrow and get them fresh, but thought that I am assuming when restaurants get them in, they keep them for at least a day or so while having them as 'specials' so why couldn't I?
The question is, what is the best method to keep these suckers (Granted they are probably dead by now...) till tomorrow?
I find w /these you gotta eat them fresh. Once they die, then the best thing is to remove the head as the goo in the head tends to degrade faster and makes the body of the prawn mushy.
If you do that though then you miss out on sucking the head after it's cooked.
That's why I don't recommend buying spot prawns when they're already dead on a bed of ice. Go with the live ones.
