What is a Spot Prawn?

Wild BC Spot Prawns are a delicacy known around the world for their sweet and elegant flavour and firm texture. The largest of the commercially available shrimp found on the west coast of Canada, Organic Ocean BC Spot Prawns are sustainably harvested using baited traps. These traps have little impact on the sea bed and see very little bycatch making them a responsible choice for those that care about the environment. To make sure stocks remain strong, the BC Spot Prawn fishery only occurs once a year starting in May and runs for an average of 53 days.

How to Prepare Spot Prawns

For best results, thaw in the tub overnight in the refrigerator. Organic Ocean Spot Prawns are excellent when eaten raw as sashimi or crudo. If you choose to cook them, they are best cooked shell on - either boiled, sauteed or even on the BBQ, then easily peeled and ready to devour. The trick is not to overcook your prawns. To ensure your prawns are perfectly prepared, cook only one to two minutes or until the prawns just turn pink. Five pounds of spot prawns too much?  Also available à la carte in individual 1/2 lb tubs here.

Good, but a little tough!

We enjoyed them but thought they were a tiny bit tough. Perhaps it's the way I defrosted them? They were in a plastic bag rather than a container which was fine but it wasn't vacuum packed - but maybe it wasn't supposed to be vacuum packed? Overall it was fine and we enjoyed them!
