*** Important update re sizing January 2020 This pack typically contains one medium prawn (about 50g), one XXL prawn (eg 180g) and five XL prawns of around 130g each*. If you need all your prawns to be the same size, please go here.

Most prawns are grey in real life but this one is 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. 

  • Our stock is normally from Mozambique
  • Carabineros are naturally bright red
  • Between 5 and 8 prawns per pack
  • Our favourite customer review of carabineros - "For those who love the taste of prawns, this is the best that you can get."

*Why? Because these prawns are frozen at sea. Space is limited and therefore so also the capacity to grade by size.


To prevent discolouration, these prawns are treated with the following antioxidants at the point of capture: E223, E301, E330.
