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 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 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.
Shell-on cold-water prawns are cooked and frozen at sea within 3 hours from catch. The fast processing locks in the natural flavour and the crisp, moist texture. The Selected catch prawns are caught at the right time – when they are at their – at least 80% with beautiful red prawn heads.
Gentle thawing in the refrigerator best preserves the ultimate freshness of the prawns.
