Product Information
  • Quite possibly the finest-tasting prawn in the world
  • Origin: Greenland, Iceland or Spitzbergen
  • Sustainbability - these fisheries are well managed

This is the same prawn as our Best North Atlantic Peeled Prawn, but it’s still in its shell. Often served in pubs as ’a pint of prawns’. Easy to peel, an exercise which adds character to your meal. These little prawns have been cooked and only need defrosting before you serve them up with a salad or as part of your plat des fruits de mer. Recent customers have said that these prawns are "Nice and big", "Very tasty" and "would not buy any other prawns as these are the best". These prawns are individually frozen so you only need to get as much as you nened out of the bag and keep the rest in the freezer. These prawns carry their eggs between their legs for up to 11 months after conception. Therefore they often include eggs, which are delicious to eat. The fishery in Greenland is well managed.

The pub serving in a pint glass holds 16-20 prawns and weighs around 200g. You'll get five pints from our big bag.
