This is the black tiger prawn 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. Why not try our whole wild king prawns?

  • Serving suggestion: Barbecued king prawns
  • These prawns are whole and raw
  • Each prawn is about 15cm long
  • Estimate: 14 prawns per pack
