Les,

I thought it was against the rules to post pictures of "Secret Lake?"

I hate to be a stickler, but there are "Fresh Water Shrimp". They are called "Mysis Shrimp"(google it) and they could live in Arizona if introduced as they were in BC to help with Kokanee fish population as a food. Only problem is the shrimp eat the same food as the Kokanee fry.
Now they have a new fishery here to catch the shrimp to bring down it's population.

That's government for you!

Yep - I do know about fresh water shrimp. While the may be marketed for human consumption - I don't recall seeing them here - and not familiar with a freshwater prawn. Mike had suggested that the prawns you were chowing down on were in the ponds and puddles around him and thought they were dirty. I knew something was off there and figured you were eating some mighty tasty, plump and large salt water prawns of colossus shrimp variety. I was also unfamiliar with saltwater bodies of water in Dunners' neck of the woods. Second clue something was amiss. I do imagine freshwater shrimp could be farmed and tasty and may even grow to prawn proportions. These days the crawfish we buy here in Texas are farm raised.

I'm not sure but think the thread has just exceeded it's capacity for serious discussion. My bad. But for future reference - if ya wrap those prawns in some bacon - now yer talking. Get the bacon about half done - wrap - and finish on the grill. You can thank me later.

We call em' Crayfish up here and nobody eats em.

We eat a lot of Bacon wrapped scallops as Hors de' Ovaries here! Never tried bacon wrapped prawns but how bad could they be?

Also, another favourite goodie is Bacon wrapped Asparagus on the BBQ!

And if you are stuck, Bacon wrapped Bacon will work in a pinch!

Somewhere in the past I was at a gathering where the Hors D’oeuvres included bacon wrapped prawns in fact it would have fit this thread nicely as it included bacon wrapped everything. I think the event was a party at the Kinsmen Hut in Chilliwack, BC.


Hors de' Ovaries are for the real con noisiers.

Down here a good old Louisiana Crawfish Boil looks a little like this. Click image for larger version

Usually ears of corn and new potatoes are boiled with em and the Cajun seasoning ranges from mild heat to Turbo hot. Come on down boys, it's boiling season. This is a finger smacking feast best accompanied by ice cold beer.

Edit - that's odd - pic shows torn on iPhone but comes up when I click on it. May need to try again later. - never mind - there they are. Lol.

Who would have thought that there would be a market for little Arizonians?

Speaking of anomalies, who turned off Global Warming? We've been freezing to death out here on the Left coast for the better part of two weeks.

So I guess some people do eat fresh water shrimp.

But I know a prawn from a crawfish - and still don't think dirty prawns are swimming around in puddles in Phoenix.

As for old potatoes - there's probably a farm growing em between your place and the dunes.

A friend from Phoenix sent me this pic of an Arizona Patio Prawn the other day. Says they are becoming more frequent.

They're apparently served roasted with old potatoes.

People do eat those things and there is something growing out there... around Dateland. I see rows and rows of it. It's a shame... they never water them.

Dirty prawns don't swim around in mud puddles around Phx... they get squished by MHs and run over by toads... the same things they should do to all Scorpions.
