Health Benefits:

These prawns are low in fat and most of the fat contents are the good ones that can help enhance blood cholesterol levels. They also contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that may help lower the risk of heart disease and contribute in brain function. However, these are also rich in cholesterol and in sodium. Care to pair with a heap of veggies or consume in moderation.

These are also a good source of protein, which one can opt for over red meat from time to time. A hundred-gram serving gives away 46% of the daily recommended intake of this nutrient.

In addition, they are rich in selenium, an essential trace mineral that plays a significant role in keeping the immune system healthy and has antioxidant properties. The same serving provides 71% of the daily value need.

They contain as well a good amount of phosphorus, vitamin B12 and small amounts of other vitamins and minerals.

Awesome Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns
We love the convenience of ordering quality seafood from Gerald.  The Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns were of awesome quality — they came 7 to 8 large pieces equaling to a 1 kilo bag of prawns.  In the last month we have ordered 3 bags from Gerald (among other seafood and other products). We made Hawaiian Kahuku butter garlic prawns with a side of sweet and spicy Vietnamese dipping sauce.   Eating the Tiger Prawns in the bitter garlic sauce brought us back to the Oahu North Shore and Kahuku.  Will order more from Gerald.
