Blindern Studenterhjem there was a presentation of Norwegian culture,
with traditional Norwegian folk dance and an introduction to Norwegian
rendered a paper on the difference between a shrimp and a prawn. She
said she had always wondered about what makes the difference. After a
careful study she concluded that besides the size - a prawn is bigger
than a shrimp - the shrimps carries their eggs on their bodies, while
the prawns do not.
eating a shrimp sandwich there is a debate whether the mayonnaise should
be under or on top of the shrimps. Her opinion was that the mayonnaise
should be under the shrimp, to avoid the shrimps to fall off.
addition you squeeze lemon juice on top of the sandwich. On this there
is no debate.
