Our pure, delicious spot prawns in seawater are harvested sustainably in cold, clean waters off British Columbia.

Upon harvest they're hand-packed in tubs with seawater, and flash-frozen to preserve their fresh-caught quality.

Their name stems from the bright white dots that mark their shells; it's equally accurate to call them spot prawns or spot shrimp.

Some of our prawns may include an extra special treat – a clutch of oil rich red roe on their bellies. This can be gently captured with a spoon to use as a garnish, or simply removed and discarded with the shells after cooking.

Spot prawns (Pandalus platyceros) are abundant and the fishery is well-managed and sustainable. There are very low rates of "by-catch" because the prawns are caught with small individual traps instead of large trawls and dredges.

"Yumlicious!" Francine on 05/12/2018 05:21 Review: This prawns are meaty, good sized. Take a few minutes to cook and the shell peals easily. They are sweet and not fishy at all. Always excited to receive these.

Storage

Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Held under these conditions the Pacific Spot Prawns should retain their quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

Thawing instructions

Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.

For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

Preparation

  • Keep prawns frozen until about an hour prior to cooking.
  • Soak the frozen sealed container in a sink or basin of cool water for about 30 minutes.
  • Pour the contents into a strainer and rinse with fresh, cold water to melt away any remaining ice.
  • Prawns can be prepared whole or as peeled and de-veined. (There are no health or culinary reasons to de-vein prawns: it’s simply a matter of aesthetic preference.)
  • To quickly peel and de-vein prawns, take a pair of sharp kitchen scissors and cut down the middle of the back shell right to the tail tip. Then break open the shell and pull it off leaving the tail attached. Pull or wash out the vein.

Cooking/Serving Tips

  • Prawns can be grilled, baked, sautéed, boiled, steamed, or skewered and grilled
  • Prawns take only 1 to 2 minutes to be done. Remove Prawns from heat as soon as they turn pink: overcooking will toughen them.
  • Prawns go well in all kinds of pasta dishes – including scampi and pesto – and can be served cold with cocktail sauce (ketchup plus a touch of horseradish) or the dip of your choice. We like dipping them in a blend of melted butter and olive oil, seasoned with our Organic Salmon Marinade mix.
