Product Information

Our raw peeled king prawns are ready to go after defrosting. They have been peeled and deveined so no further cleaning is required before hitting the pan. The tiger prawn from South-East Asia is the world’s favourite king prawn, but question marks hang over its production. We take great care in sourcing our tiger prawns: no, we don’t personally police the farms, but our two key suppliers know their sources well. We sell this item both raw and cooked - you will find the cooked version of tiger prawns here. Please note that unlike many other sites, we quote you the defrosted weight, not the gross weight. All peeled king prawns have a protective ice glaze, which melts away upon defrosting. Some suppliers add a very thick glaze, to make their prawns seem heavier and therefore cheaper. Ours have a 20% glaze; dubious prawns can have a glaze of up to 50%.
