Lift out the vein. Butterfly the prawns by cutting along their inner curves 3/4 of the way through, spreading the open and flattening with a cleaver.

Marinade: Put the vinegar, water, salt, sugar and MSG into a mixing bowl and stir together thoroughly. Add the prawns, marinade at room temperature for 1 hour.

Add 3/4 pt of water to the remaining yolks, stir thoroughly, and cook over a moderate heat for 10-15 minutes until the yolks are firm and hard-boiled. Drain them in a sieve, and mash them into a paste. Beat the sugar, salt, salt, lemon juice, MSG, and the rest of the raw egg yolks and continue to beat. Rub the mixture through a fine sieve.
