}Dried seafood (especially dried prawns) are used an enormous amount
in Thai food for the outragous amounts of umami and texture they can
add to dishes...
 An example of this is Som Tam, the Thai green papaya salad... It's
just not the same without the subtle notes the dried prawns bring to
the dish...

 Is there some reason that "dried seafood" is better theologically
 this, compared to seafood in general? Or is dried shrimp just easier
 to get? Or for some reason does dried seafood work better in this   
 recipe than fresh seafood would?
