How To Cook Frozen Prawn
The most important procedure before cooking frozen prawns is to thaw them. In order to defrost them, remove the prawns from their packet, and dunk them in a bowl filled with water. Cover the mouth of the bowl and leave the prawns in the refrigerator to defrost overnight.
For a quicker way to thaw prawns, roll them tightly in waterproof bag and douse it in a sink full of cold water. Your prawns will be de-iced within an hour.
Now you can safely remove the shell and de-vein the prawns before cooking. When cooked, prawns are likely to turn pink in color. To boil prawns, fill a saucepan with water, add some sea salt to it, and bring the water to boil. Add the prawns, cover the pan with a lid, reduce the heat, and let the prawn simmer until done. Once prawns start to float above and turn opaque, you can remove it from the pan.
You can also grill prawns if you want. Just marinate the prawns for a few hours, put them in damp wooden skewers, place them on aluminum foil over hot grill or over barbeque coal, and cook until done. Brush the prawns with a little olive oil and then sprinkle them with salt, pepper, garlic, and grill for some more time.
Nothing can be more yum than pan-fried prawns. In a pan, take some butter and oil and heat it over high flame. Add the prawns, a few cloves of chopped garlic, seasoning and fry until the prawn turns pink.
