How to cook tiger prawns?

Seafood is not only an exquisite delicacy, but also a very useful product. For example, shrimp contains a huge number of trace elements in excess of their content in meat. Shrimps are useful for pregnant women, as they contain a lot of calcium, iodine, proteins, as well as those who are actively involved in sports and are subjected to various kinds of loads.

The most useful, of course, are fresh shrimps, but it is not so easy to buy them in Russian stores. Most often in the supermarkets come across frozen shrimp. Of these, it is better to choose fresh frozen, not cooked and frozen. Since the latter contains several times less nutrients.
