  5. Bring this to a good boil. Then turn the heat lower. Cover the pan and let the ingredients simmer for 7 minutes. With a potato masher (or a fork) squeeze the cooked prawn heads (because that's where all the flavor comes from). Then strain the prawn soup mixture through a fine sieve and catch the prawn broth.
