Answer

(Fatwa: 256/232=D/1430)

 

It is makrooh tahreemi (undesirable to an extent of being haram) to eat prawns. However, some people regard it a kind of fish and allow eating it. For details see: Fiqhi Maqalat by Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani. In short, it is better to avoid; it is more precautious. It is allowable if someone eats it considering it lawful.
