KDA's Division of Aquaculture's tips for preparing local shrimp:
"Local shrimp have a sweet flavor and texture like lobster. If working with whole prawn, cook the same day as harvest. If not cooking that day, twist off the head and keep the tails whole and cold on drained ice, do not let them sit in water. And don't thaw frozen shrimp completely. Cook them while they are still slightly frozen. Freshwater shrimp cook faster than marine shrimp and should not be overcooked. Eat them while they are hot and yummy!"
