First twist off the head and pull off the tail. It should then be quite easy to peel off the shell, and with it the tiny legs. If you are using large, uncooked king prawns, make a shallow cut down the back of each prawn and remove the fine digestive cord which runs the length of the body. Wash the prawns before you use them.
