At times, juveniles have been observed on muddy bottoms, but adults are generally found around rock piles, crevices, coral, on sponges, under boulders, and debris-covered bottoms. So What Do Spot Prawns Taste Like? Spot prawns taste like the best shrimp you have ever had. The texture is delicate, almost buttery, providing a sort of melt-in-your-mouth sensation, and the flavor is sweet, fresh, and briny.
