Frozen Tiger Prawn (Head On/Shell On)
Easily identifiable by their stripes, tiger prawns are moist, flavoursome with a crisp bite or snap and a pleasant shrimp taste. These prawns are shelled on which means prawn heads and prawn shells are intact and can be used for making mouth-watering soup. Peeling them after cooking usually makes for a juicier, more flavourful prawn. They are packed frozen in various sizes ranging from the smallest 26/30 (26-30 pcs per kg in a packet) to 8/10 (8-10 pcs per kg in a packet).
Country of Origin: Vietnam
Note: Not for raw consumption.
These prawns are really an easy ingredient to work with! They are delicious on their own, can be cooked in a myriad of ways and are also excellent for BBQing. Grilled shirmps on skewers, tossed in salad, served as shrimp cocktail, fried with rice and noodles - there are just so much you can do with them!
