Nice day yesterday, light snow falling with light to moderate winds, very purty indeed.

Superimposed over the nice day are two recent meals. On the left a very juicy grilled chicken thigh with vegetables boiled in with salt beef, jigs dinner so to speak. On the right is something I have not had for some years, curried prawns, or shrimp. Back in the day curried prawns was my second favorite meal at Chinese restaurants. Second behind prawn cutlets.
Seeing as I am having fun trying dishes with the raw prawns being sold at BigLand I might have to try the cutlets, though a bit on the small side I think it worth a try.

The Narwhal meat and mattak did not go to waste, lots of people trying both, getting good reviews for the most part.
Coincidentally, an article in Macleans magazine this week brings up many interesting points about narwhal hunting.

Prawn cutlets? Do you have a recipe that you use?

Prawn {shrimp] cutlets: . Large shrimp uncooked, de veined with tail on. Maybe you can buy them butterflied, if not slit down the back [not all the way through] where the vain was and flatten out.

Now you just need some bread crumbs, egg wash and flour.

Toss the shrimp in flour, dip in egg wash then toss in breadcrumbs. Deep fry until golden brown, should not take long. Drain and serve with lots and lemon and whatever accompaniments you favor.
