Do I cook them whole and then clean them or do I clean them beforehand and then cook them ?
And recipe ideas ?

I'm avoiding shrimp for now, I suggest you do the same. inb4 edgy teens saying you can't fix a problem so we should be as violent and amoral as our imaginations allow.

Are your prawns head on like in the picture? If they are, you can use the heads and organs to make some thai dishes. Or remove the heads and shells and make seafood stock out of them.

Either way, I would clean the shrimp first unless you're broiling them. Clean all your shrimp and remove the vein if you so desire. After that, you can make a shitload of great things. Ceviche, shrimp and grits, stir fry, tacos, fried shrimp, scampi, etc. I probably like Scampi or Shrimp and Grits best.

As much as I like shrimp, I'm going to have to agree with you. The methods they use to fish for shrimp are not great for the oceans as well so I've virtually stopped eating it.

They're caught in the Adriatic sea by local fishermen who use techniques hundreds years old so I don't have any issues like that, luckily.
Yes they are just like the picture. I froze them after buying (they were still alive) and now I want to prepare them. I've heard numerous opinions about cleaning so I thought I'd ask here what is the best method.
I thought about making some stock out of the heads and shells and maybe grilling the meat. Or maybe tacos even.
Thanks for the input about cleaning. Much appreciated.

This. I know a bunch of the people in my city who fish prawns (humpback, spot, side stripe etc) and buy them local and live.

Love them butter-poached or roasted in the shell, but really any method is good if you have really fresh prawns. Also they're great raw.

we usually just cook em whole then clean them take off the heads and shells and whatnot

>>7189117
we eat them shit tract and all except for the heads and the shells

He means prawns because that's what they're called where he's from. Seeing as you knew what he meant I don't see what the problem is.

>>7189158
No, he means prawns, you know, the animal, like he said. Arrogant Ameriblob scum.

Lucky man. I'm near the Gulf of Mexico and they trawl for shrimp and its terrible for the seafloor. The bycatch alone is terrible.
