Giant Freshwater Prawns

800g per pack

Also known as giant river prawn, giant freshwater prawn, Malaysian prawn, or Hawaiian blue prawn, which is due to their bright-blue tail, lenthly blue legs, and antennae. Farmed in freshwater, they grow up to 6 to 7 inches and can weigh 4 to 6 ounces.

They have a sweet delicate flavor, similar to lobster, and have firm and white flesh.


How to Cook Freshwater Prawns

Peeled or with shell, the meat is firmer with the shell on. Cooking with the heads on keeps their natural juices and boosts the flavor.
