Cleaning prawns (shrimps) isn’t that difficult but not everybody is so lucky to get a hand on a fresh batch of prawns and many don’t know how to devein and clean them. I personally hadn’t know how to do it, in fact I learned to clean prawns a few years back and I have to tell you, I am glad I learned it after all.
I always loved to eat prawns and the only time we would get to taste some would be on our yearly trip visiting our family in France. Fresh Prawns are 1000000 times better then frozen ones and totally worth the time cleaning and preparing!
Today, I and my husband, had gone for a round into town. We are experiencing the monsoon season now, so fishing out with boats is strictly punished, all that due to the dangerous weather. That in turn means fish and seafood prices reach exhilarating prices in the markets.
Most of the locals here love to go fishing the whole rainy season untill October. People own Seasonal businesses and end up nearly 6 month a year sitting at home or going fishing.
We came across a fisher lady who gave us a good price of around 12 € for 1 1/2 kg of big white prawns. What a great catch and then during the rainy season. Because of that we made a clip where we show you how to clean prawns easily.
How to clean and devein prawns shrimps?
Keep a bowl of water with lemon juice to wash your hands. The lemon kills the fishy smell. The fresher they are the less they will stink.
Make sure that you remove the dark vein/intestines of the prawns! It is not healthy to leave that in, so if u don’t want to get sick, remove it out!
