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?
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.
