The terms shrimp and prawn are generally used interchangeably  although biologically they are different. Both are  decapods, a type of crustacean within the class Malacostraca, which includes other edible shellfish such as crayfish, crabs and lobsters.  Different types  are found in  both seawater and fresh water and they are also widely farmed in various countries. You can substitute one for the other in most recipes and in the famous words of Bubba in the film Forest Gump....

"Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There's, um, shrimp kebabs, shrimp Creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There's pineapple shrimp and lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich......."
