Cioffis market on hastings in burnaby has lots of great sausages, including chorizo. Saffron you can really get anywhere, but the g.i. market is good for spices.

gotta ask Niu99 about that
On a side note, when I had prawns in China, they were very small in size and the shells were very soft. I could basically eat the whole prawn with the shell. I don't know why but I kept having this idea that they caught them in sewers or something like that. Maybe because they catch sewer rats and deep fry them =0

thats cause the prawns u eat in china r mainly river shrimps, not the prawns here that r caught in the ocean.

didnt someone last year on rs sold prawns at large quantities? i remember sending him an email about how much i want and stuff but i never got any prawns or replies.

Went to T&T at coquitlam mall and bought them for 13.99/lb.

They had two tanks. The top tank had fresh ones (prawns moving actively) and the bottom tank seemed to have old ones (prawns barely moving). Make sure you ask them to give you prawns from the fresh tank only.

Use the leftover prawn heads to make a prawn stock soup base. Would go well with Seafood Noodle Soup.

I fry the prawn heads with butter. Using them for seafood broth is also good as mentioned above.
