There is a Freshwater Prawn farm around 30 miles up from Fort Worth in Wise County. They have 3 ponds that they harvest in September on three consecutive Saturdays.

I picked up a couple of pounds last Saturday and grilled them on sticks. They have a sweet, lobster taste and are a steal at $8 a pound.

Here are some pics:

I am soooo jealous as I have an addiction to Prawns and Shrimp.

What a treat. 3 weeks a year. How else do you prepare them?

They do shrimp boils right there at the ponds, but i think grilling is best1
