Shrimp Delicious: As soon as we said we were gathering some of our best recipes for this handy cookbook about one of the worlds favourite shellfish, the debate began: whats the difference between a shrimp and a prawn?Some claim it has to do with size, and large shrimp are really prawns. But that doesnt explain how grocery stores can sell jumbo, or even colossal(!), shrimp. Others say shrimp live in salt water, while prawns inhabit fresh. But both migrate into each others waters, so thats out. The name also depends on where theyre eaten. In North America, its a shrimp. In England and Australia, its a prawn. What to do?At Companys Coming, weve voted for shrimp. The name underlines the pleasing contrast between their tiny size and huge flavour. Dip into these pages and seeour collection of appetizers and entrees is simply shrimp delicious!
