Red Carabinero Prawn, 1.1 kilo box

Ruby red and jumbo in proportion, these Carabinero Prawns pack juicy, succulent meat with salty brightness and brisk freshness. Caught off the coast of Huelva, in southwestern Spain, these prawns are flash frozen as soon as they’ve been hoisted to the surface, maximizing their longevity and retaining fresh flavor and texture once they’ve shipped.

Carabineros are the world's largest prawns, living far off the coast in deep waters of the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean. In Spanish and Portuguese cuisines, they are typically prepared with just a little bit of salt and a few minutes on the grill, showcasing their sheer richness and sweetness. We also love them seared, poached, or steamed, and we often dress them with Nori butter to coax out an even creamier mouthfeel with amplified oceanic herbaceousness. Regardless of how they’re prepared, we implore you not to let any bit of these prawns go to waste -- so much of their distinctive flavor is in the head, which retains its brilliantly red color throughout the cooking process. A stunning fish to share with guests, we are always thrilled to feature these Carabineros.

1.1kg packs in either U4, U5-7, or 7/9 sizes

Shrimp and prawn sizing are relative, indicating how many pieces form a pound. The “U” stands for “under” - which means that a “U4” features the largest individual fish, since “under four” of them will add up to a pound. U5 will feature slightly smaller prawns, with fewer than five of them forming a pound, and 7/9 means that 7 - 9 will form a pound.
