I have gor some Frozen Aussie wild Banana Prawns
Do you advise cooking and then shelling or can I shell BEFORE I cook them.
How do I de Vein them!
Thank you.

You can do either.depends on how you want to eat/prepare them. When they are thawed, you need to cut up the back of each prawn ( the curved side) you will see the vein running up the back. You can buy prawn de-veining scissors that are specially curved to snip easily through the shell and up the back of the prawn.
