Where to get your Prawns!

Have you ever had the fun of being out prawning in the middle of the night fully clothed waist deep in water trying to catch your own prawns as they are swimming towards you fast ?!

It is fun if you are into it like we were even though I wasn't that good at it being my first time and I don't enjoy wearing any more than a bikini in the water so I felt uncomfortable in clothes!

However it made a change to be eating prawns that we caught ourselves later on rather than just buying them at the local shop as we usually do and

Garlic Prawns are great for an entree especially when eating out doors as we do a lot when there are not millions of flies with extreme heat. So you want to know how to cook prawns now you have either caught them fresh or bought them from the local shop !
