got a wok, but not sure if i can manage the high heat & alcohol combo well. but might as well try!

that looks definitely divine & delicious!

that reminds me, i should ask my mom for her fabulous fried prawn recipe. i think it would go well w/ spot prawns as it does w/ jumbo S.Asian prawns!

so i ended up doing a two-way spot prawn feast. the 1st was a simple boil & the 2nd dish was a recipe by Rob Feenie [link below]. prepared 3 dips: warm butter & garlic; mayo+chili+lemon-juice; and this 1 found on the label of a bottle of coconut vinegar frm T&T: soy-sauce+vinegar+sugar+olive-oil. washed down w/ SaltSpring Island organic IPA.

Where to get reverse osmosis water?

don't know if they have reverse-osmosis system, but has various other type of water filters: http://yourwatermatters.com/

Finlandia Pharmacy also sells something called a 'Kangen Water'

Spot Prawn in Vancouver : Favorite Recipes & Restaurants' Menu Highlights

Hi:

I went to the annual Spot Prawn Festival yesterday. It was a bit disappointing - only a single boil item on-the-plate! Although it was good but it was nowhere near last year's - which offered choice of several different prawn creations by some of the well-known local chefs.

Anyway, I was wondering if chowhounders could share what are their favorite spot prawn recipes and also list which restaurants are serving delicious prawn dishes in metro vancouver.

For starter, I saw Go Fish! is doing a Spot Prawn special which is possibly the freshest prawn menu in town!

Is there a restaurant in Vancouver that does a grass fed burger?

Controversial Kitchen @ Commercial Drive seems to be a good bet.

according to the article, the meat comes from a
"certified-biodynamic ranch, which produces certified-organic, grass-fed and -finished meat under the Pasture to Plate label."
