Back to King Prawns
STEP 1: Bring 2.5 litres of water to the boil, add 2 tablespoons of sea salt.
STEP 2: Add prawns to boiling water.
STEP 3: Cook for 3-4 minutes. Prawns are done when they float to the top of the water.
To test, take out a prawn and hold it to the light, it is cooked when the flesh has shrunk from the shell slightly and the prawn looks translucent.
STEP 4: When they're done, remove them from the boiling water and place in a big bowl of iced water to cool them.
STEP 5: Peel and eat! Great on their own or serve with vinegar, lemon or just bread and butter.
Also great for use in salads, fried rice and many other dishes.
