Might be worthwhile to send his number out if you still have it. Seemed like a nice enough guy that just wanted to help us out.

Not worth it. They only give 3 spot prawns for your "dish".

Save that money and buy youself a pound.

I'm just telling my experience. Checked my email history from 2012. It was only $13.25 per person including tax.

Now it's almost $20. Definitely passing.

which restaurant would offer the best spot prawn sashimi, the ones where it is alive moments before it is served to you.
Last year I had it at Miku and Octopus garden, the ones at octopus garden was already dead i think cause I saw him preparing it. Miku I am not sure because I didnt get to see the prep process.

I also had it cooked with soy sauce at Kirin and Sea Harbour, which was delicious, but was rather pricy.

You'd be surprised how easy it is to make it at home.

Haha except I'm going to be staying in a hotel while I'm in van, so there is really no kitchen for me to make my own spot prawn sashimi

Buy some sushi rice from a nearby Japanese restaurant, be sure to ask for some wasabi and soy sauce on the side.

Bring a knife from home (or buy one from the dollar store, not sure if they are sharp enough), then buy some paper plates (local dollar store) for shell removal and de-veining, then rinse under cold water, pat dry then eat.

Typically I would deep fry those prawn heads, then stirfry in the wok with chili peppers, garlic, black pepper and seasoned salt (Cantonese style). Skip this step!

Boil the spot prawns and then pull the head off carefully so you don't puncture the sac

Here's a great and easy way of cooking them

Boiled Spot Prawns with Soya Chili Dipping Sauce | Granville Island

Chef Robert Belcham, famous for his Spot Prawn Boil at Refuel (Saturdays during the month of May) taught me his simple secret to some of the most succulent prawns ever: Just pour boiling water over a single layer of prawns in a roasting pan until covered. Wait 5 minutes, peel and enjoy.

H mart apparantly had it for 18.99 either thurs or fri, T&T was 20.99 iirc

Edit^ yeah, thats what I usually do, but fried shrimp heads sound so tasty. Only way of seeing it work is taking the head off alive which sounds like it'll get messy

Just twist and pull their heads. Friend did that at his place when he deep fried the heads and they came off quite easily.
