Prawning last night in Lake Illawarra just off my verandah. The first prawners were out at sunset and by the time I went to bed there were lots more people out. No boat needed, it's possible to just walk in with a net, container to put your catch in and light. The Lake is famous for prawns and this year has been very good. Not that I've ever tried it, I like to admire the view from shore and can't think of anything worse than standing in the Lake in the dark And here is what all the fuss is about, not the oysters on the edge of the plate, but those prawns in the middle with their eyes still on.
Life is too short to peel a prawn I say!!
