    Those are Shrimp right? This is how we know them in Mexico, and how will they be called in Spain what we call prawns? 😀

      Indeed, prawns in Mexico are known as shrimp. I've been looking and I think that what you call a prawn here is a crayfish, can it be?

    Kids, I would play my neck that the picture is prawns and not prawns. Can be?

    By the way, a tip: they are much better if you add the seafood when the water has started to boil. When done, stop the boil and when they boil again it is time to remove them to ice water, as you have said. All the best!
