Prawn Lasagne


Favourite seafood? Prawns, prawns and more of prawns. A wide variety of small crustaceans, tiny relatives of the lobster, are known as prawns. Prawns are normally translucent when raw but get their distinctive pink or red colour on being cooked. One word of caution – if buying unpeeled prawns, smell for freshness and look for bright, shiny shells that have some spring left in them. So here is the recipe:
