Cold-water prawns are a true delicacy, with their bright-pink colour and firm, juicy texture. From their origin in the ice-cold and clear waters surrounding Greenland, 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 sweet and savoury flavours combined with a juicy bite offer a full flavour experience. The prawns are high in protein and low in fat, making them a healthy choice.
Blanched cold-water prawns is a unique taste experience. The meat has a hint of texture to the bite, while the taste has the same fatness and sweetness of raw prawns.
These prawns are produced in limited quantities only when the right circumstances are present and when our experienced crew on board the trawler Avataq deem the catch to have the right qualities. After being caught, the prawns are blanched briefly, then immediately chilled in seawater and IQF frozen. To best preserve the quality and flavour of the prawns, the time from catch to finished product is less than 3 hours.
