Crevettes are giant cooked prawns in their shells. As you can tell from the name, they're a French speciality (although the prawns themselves come from warmer climates). They're ready to eat after peeling and deveining*, although you could reheat briefly and serve warm. And they are delicious. This is one of the most popular formats in which we sell king prawns. Our crevettes are VERY large, over 6 inches in most instances. A favourite customer review - "Amazing massive prawns! Easy to defrost and a brilliant starter on Christmas Day."
*Deveining: starting just above the end of the tail, use scissors to cut through the shell just above where the backbone would be, up to the head. You'll need to take care to keep the head on, although should it break off, you can always slot it back on for presentation. Now peel the shell off. The threadlike alimentary canal is embedded in the flesh about 1 mm below where you cut the shell. Open up with scissors, remove the canal and rinse. These instructions are on the pack.
