Prawns; Deep-Water (Pandalus borealis)

A type of prawn living in deep water in the North Atlantic between Norway and the North-East American seaboard. They grow up to 12cm, and in the unlikely event that you find them uncooked, need boiling for about 5 minutes or until pink.

When peeled, the dark thread along the back, which is in fact the intestine, should be removed as it tastes a little bitter.

They can be served in any manner suitable for other types of prawns or scampi.
