Product Information
  • These are frozen seperately, wrapped in foil and bubble wrap and then vacuum packed
  • Try baking these in salt with mango, chilli and coriander salsa
  • Two prawns would be enough for a starter portion as they are so big

Most prawns are grey in real life but these ones are naturally red. And that’s not just sort of red... it’s a stonking bright don’t-mess-with-me shocking red. These prawns are raw, so you will need to cook them, which is straightforward - instructions on the pack. The biggest carabineros come from Mozambique and Morocco. They’re different species but they taste and look similar. As these are very large prawns, 2 per person for a starter would be ample. Scarlet prawns are a must try for any seafood adventurer determined to tick off all the seafood greats.

We also sell Deveined Scarlet Prawns here.

How you've been using our Scarlet Prawns - AKA Carabineros...

  • "We cooked in 'garlic butter'. They don't need much take care as they curl and 'thicken' so turn often and use 'deeper' butter."
  • "For those who love the taste of prawns, this is the best that you can get."
