So, I was in the Asia Market getting some squid when I came across 'Vietnamese Scampi' in the freezer. I couldn't resist because of the size of them (that's not a pic of me, but that's about how big they are)

My conundrum is now how to cook them. I have no problem eating them without sauces, creams or anything (it's my favoured way to eat seafood), but I don't know how long to cook them for. They're currently frozen so should I thaw them before cooking?

I think they are called Macrobrachium Rosenbergii , Giant freshwater prawns.
I would thaw them, Up to you whether you steam or fry them.
They need a little kick being freshwater crustaceans so salt and chilli would be on my list

That's actually very easy. Once thawed, boil them and see them slowly turn pink. Once pink, they're done.

This recipe looks nice
