Cold-water prawns are a delicacy, with their pink colour and firm, juicy texture. From their origin in the ice-cold and clear waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, the cold-water prawns grow slowly until reaching full size at 6 years. Due to the slow growth flavours and texture are given time to fully develop. The prawns are high in protein and low in fat, making them a healthy choice.
Cooked and peeled cold-water prawns are individually quick-frozen to make portioning easy even when frozen. Gentle thawing in the refrigerator preserves the natural flavours.
ServingThe cold-water prawns are uniform in size with a consistent quality. Their fresh taste is ideally complimented by mild, fatty or acidic flavours. The prawns lend themselves well to cold dishes including salads, sandwiches and appetizers or as toppings.
