Mind you I can’t say the word prawn without affecting a Saffa accent in my mind like in District 9

De-veining prawns is easy, and in fact not necessary (though preferable). Deshelling them which most people get stuck on is easy too, just Google for a video on how to do both There are always loads of clips of that sort of thing now and better than one of us explaining it.

But not eating anything with an exo-skeleton is to be applauded. All the more scallops, lobster etc for the rest of us.

P.s
Although everyone thinks prawns are better because they are bigger, shrimp have more flavour

Do scallops have an exoskeleton?

Isn't a shell a kind of exo-skeleton?

I don't think it counts, because it's armour rather than a chassis, or it's just not complicated enough, or something.

I looked and all online sources I can find seem to suggest that shells are exo-skeletons

No, I'm not the biggest seafood fan really. I like cod (or cod replacement), and tuna, but I think that's about it.

Peanut butter and jam on toast, but make it in the pan like you are making a grilled cheese.

IT all melts and goes amazing. (Just give it a few minutes to cool a bit before biting in!)

You're welcome.

I asked LMCW if she would like smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast today and her eyes lit up, she nodded furiously and excitedly said "with flat leaf parsley on top"?

Why can’t we just have traditional Italian toppings like this?

Trouble with things like that is the C HIP S are invariably soggy to the point of being nearly unrecognisable.

1) Neither crab nor lobster are fish. Though they are shellfish/seafood
2) Lobster thermidor
I'm somewhat disappointed in you

1. So I can disregard this.
2. You think fruit on a pizza is good/correct, so you thinking that cheese on a lobster is good is no real recommendation.

The only time it's barely passable is Pizza Romano because the anchovies are strong enough to deal with the bland mozzarella. That said The Napoletana comes without the cheese... which is how I order it.

Thankfeck for that . I thought the bits that look like thin rice were grated cheese.

Now as long as it was cooked al dente I'll cancel the hit on you.
