Defrosting frozen prawns

Recommended Posts

Evening all...

I read somewhere just before Christmas that a good way to thaw frozen prawns was to chuck them into some freshly-gathered seawater to preserve the natural taste. I tried this and the results were excellent.

Further investigations on the interweb have suggested that this practice is fraught with the possible danger of contracting any number of life-threatening diseases. (?!)

I realise that the source of the gathered seawater would obviously be a consideration, but if it is a pristine location, should that be a problem?

I also tried a brine solution of 40gm of rock salt per litre of fresh water which seemed to work equally as well, but was not as convenient or "organic".

Any thoughts?
