Giant Shrimp and what to do with them…

These are the biggest shrimp I have ever seen, ridiculous Frank-en-shrimp. I’m at a local night market in Kuala Lumpur and I come across these baby’s, Penaeus monodon, or Giant Tiger Prawns. Indigenous to SE Asia waters they grow to about 14 inch in length, these are only about 9 inches and for scale, I put a normal shrimp next to them.
