Great deal, thanks OP!

I head this year they might be bigger as the season was delayed.

T&T was like $34.88/pound I believe so this is a killer deal

I guess 32/lb is for live spot prawns? Head-off would be horrible to me...

I love just steam them and dip them in spicy garlic soy sauce.

Salmon ain't bad for a fillet at $13.50/lbs. These fillets are far superior to most store bought.

If these are fresh right off the boat, and not in some supermarket's dirty tank (T&T), then you are good to go eating them raw. Twist head off, eat the tail, suck the head. You can dip some soy and wasabi if you like. The taste will be stupidly sweet. If you don't want to suck the head, then keep all the heads, boil in water and add in miso to taste. Enjoy your miso spot prawn soup.

for years id go down to the dock when the boats came in and buy a few pounds, eat a bunch raw on the dock and then take the rest home to cook. Usually on the dock i could find fresh running water in a hose and id give it a little rinse right before i ate. the last time no running water, and i ended up sick pretty bad for a few days. (not saying the fresh water rinse does anything, more anecdotal than anything). So sure you can eat them right off the boat .... but be forewarned ;)

i wouldn't eat them raw unless they were alive when i bought them. those boats just put throw them into ice but you don't know long they've been dead or how clean their containers are. I'm pretty snobby spot prawn eater, I buy them from supermarkets fresh up to 4 hours before dinner, throw them into a cooler with water and ice bring them home to kitchen sink with water (within 30 min drive) and usually about 50% are still alive having survived the trip (i buy up to 2 pounds). Like another poster, i just steam them (not over cook, never overcook seafood anyways) and their meat is stiff unlike the ones i buy that are already dead.
