Product Information
  • Serving suggestion: Barbecued king prawns
  • These prawns are whole and raw
  • Size: pretty big - about 15cm long
  • About 14 prawns per pack
  • Packed in a tray for easy storage

These are the king prawns farmed throughout South-East Asia. Eat by themselves or toss a couple into a cooked dish to make it look spectacular. Fun to peel at the dinner table. These prawns are great to grill on the bbq as the shell keeps the meat well protected. They're frozen into a shallow bed of water to keep them static inside their box and ensure they are pristine when you defrost them. As an alternative, try our whole WILD king prawns.

If you're looking for detail, we swap between the two farmed species - black tiger and vannamei (whiteleg) - and between sources including India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Vietnam and others.
