Halong Bay fishermen are blessed with many kinds of prawn, lobster, white pearl shrimp, or tiger shrimp. However, the rarest, most valuable, and most delicious are prawn and lobster. In Halong, people make full use of lobster by using its shell as a decorating ornament, which are now available widely at any souvenir shops in Halong.

There are two popular methods of prawn processing in Halong, steaming and breaded frying. However, steamed prawn is more preferable because people love to enjoy the natural taste it provides. During the steaming, chefs have to hook up the prawns very carefully in order not to break its small claws, in combination with using additional ingredients like beer or tubers lemongrass to remove its fishy smell.
