How to tell if prawn are cooked?
If you’re not sure whether your prawns are cooked, insert a skewer or sharp knife into the thickest part of the flesh. If it slides in easily and the flesh is opaque, then the prawns are cooked. If the skewer meets resistance or the flesh is still translucent, then the prawns need a little longer.
When you’re frying, the prawns will take comma shape when they are well cooked. If they starts to take o shape you’re overcooking! But hey! They will give more crispy crunchy taste!
