Three generations on my Mum's side of the family are allergic to shellfish. So as a child I wasn't allowed to eat them and then I became vegetarian age 13. But I've always been curious because people rave about prawns. My late grandmother used to sit up with a glass of beer and a bowl of garlic prawns. She absolutely loved them. I really wanted to see what all the fuss was but obviously I'm not going to eat a prawn. One because I could never eat an animal and two because I would probably die. I was in luck though! Loving Hut were selling 'Vegan King Prawns'. I had no idea what one should do with prawns so I cooked up some fettucini then stir fried the prawns, onion, carrot, zuchinni and asparagus. Voila! They were really yummy. A little creepy because they look so real - not something I think I could get used to! But I enjoyed them. I might do garlic ones for christmas to wash down with some beer and remember Nanna.
