Frozen 1KG boxes of 2020 BC caught whole spot prawns. Vacuum sealed in 2 x 500g 'easy separation' sleeves to allow portioning.
These are the most valuable species of prawn in the world, prized for its size and sweetness, and typically served as nigiri in traditional sushi restaurants.
Large (LA) grade are 25-29 pieces per 1KG box.
XL grade are 20-24 pieces per 1KG box.
Contains sulphites - sodium metabisulfite preservative is used mostly to prevent discolouration of prawn heads.
Caught from waters all over Vancouver Island, we truck them in from offload docks daily through the annual season. We process overnight on Quadra Island, utilizing a live tank system to maximize freshness.
We recommend cooking conservatively and preventing tails from surpassing 150F internal temperature. Boiling from thawed 30-60 seconds is ideal, for example. Do not overcook, and use an ice bath for cooked prawns if you're not serving them right away.
