Nothing spells party better than prawn and shrimp fritters. These two crustaceans are an important part of our seafood and people just can’t have enough of them. Quite often the term shrimp and prawn are used interchangeably but they are in fact two different kinds of sea animals. Both these crustaceans are different in their anatomy, but have a similar nutrition profile and almost similar taste and hence they are confused for each other.
Prawns are larger in size, have larger legs with claws on three pairs, while shrimps are smaller than prawns in most cases and have claws on two pairs of their legs. Other than these anatomical difference, there really is nothing much to differentiate between these two creatures of the sea. Taste wise both are delicious and make for great finger foods.
