Hi Attie,

I was reading this thread and have a question that you may be able to answer for me.

My DH and relatives love cooked green prawns but I can't stand the taste of them - as Jeekinz said they taste fishy - but I can eat kilo after kilo of cooked prawns from the co-op or supermarket. The only way I can eat green prawns is when they are dowsed in garlic.

DH and rels say that green prawns are just uncooked prawns and there is no difference. If they are why do I hate the taste of them so much?

tks
Cath

Hi Cath
Yes, green prawns are raw [uncooked] prawns, cooked prawns from the co-op or supermarket are just cooked, they do not over cook them because they would loose weight. Would your relatives be cooking the prawns themselves, if so, they may be cooking them in a different manner, nothing wrong with that but the pro guys optimise the product, but either still shouldn't taste fishy.
I don't like raw prawns either, they have no flavour to me, the sweetness comes out with cooking.
