Prawn cook-off challenge


Can you tell the difference between fresh and frozen prawns? That was the best we put ourselves to. Two sets of raw king prawns, one which I put in the freezer for a month and then defrosted, and one that was fresh.


Two identical frying pans, to cook each set of prawns in a mixture of oil and butter. They were otherwise unseasoned.


Finally they were served up on identical plates. Elina did not know which was which, but obviously I did.


Could we tell the difference? Yes: but it is not clear which is best! The fresh prawns had more of a meaty texture, but the defrosted prawns actually had more of a prawn flavour.
