Hi, I have a question about plurals. Is there a context in which a plural noun is treated as a singular noun and considered grammatically correct? For example, consider the following sentence:

1. The stir-fried prawns we ordered was delicious.

It seems to make sense to treat “stir-fried prawns” as a singular noun because it’s a dish, an item on a menu.
