Yes, we know there is more to seafood than just prawns! But it takes a lot of effort to get the prickly bones out of fish and fish fillet or oysters / squids / calamari / crabs / lobsters aren’t as readily available everywhere as prawns. Moreover, not every base or gravy is meant for every seafood but prawns beats them all. Here’s a list of dishes that the hassle-free, readily available seafood goes best with and we’re sure there are more out there that we don’t know of, yet. So, feel free to comment below and let us know that favourite prawns dish that didn’t make it to our list.
