fantail shrimp is also called butterfly shrimp

Explanation:
Actually, "Krabben" are the tiny and very tasty shrimps caught in the North Sea ( and the Baltic), while all other ( larger)shrimp are referred to as "Garnelen" . The dish suggested should be "Schmetterlingsgarnelen", see:

Bon appetit...
( The Nordseekrabben would be much too small to have their tails flattened: I know, because they used to be my favorite food when I lived there)
