Our Argentinian prawns are sweet and delicious, with a texture and flavour similar to lobster. These huge prawns are commonly regarded as the best-tasting prawn available. The red prawn’s buttery flavour and meaty texture make it ideal for grilling, just brushed with your favourite marinade or sauce.

  • Our red prawns are wild-caught in the chilly waters off Argentina’s coast then flash frozen onboard the vessel to ensure the highest quality.
  • Red prawns are neither experiencing population problems nor overfishing. The fishery was undergoing a fishery improvement project in collaboration with MSC as of 2021.
  • Red prawns are bright red when captured, as opposed to other types of shrimp, which are normally blue or grey when caught before turning pink.
  • You will receive a 750g ziplock bag of roughly 12-14 large Argentinian Prawns (Uncleaned).

Additionally, these prawns are versatile. You can fry, bake, or even steam them for different dishes. Their rich flavor enhances any meal, from pasta to salads. Plus, they cook quickly, making them perfect for a fast, gourmet dinner.

Moreover, we source our Argentinian prawns responsibly. This ensures you enjoy not only great taste but also sustainable seafood. Adding these prawns to your dishes brings a touch of luxury and a blast of flavour.

So, for a special seafood treat, try our Argentinianprawns. Whether grilled, fried, or baked, they promise a memorable dining experience. These prawns turn any meal into a celebration of taste.

Cooking

For best results, defrost prawn completely prior to cooking. Argentinian red shrimp are particularly susceptible to overcooking. To easily prepare your red prawns, place thawed prawns into boiling water and simmer for approximately 2-3Β½ minutes.

Ideally cooked on the braai, pan-fried or grilled for maximum flavour for approximately 2-3 minutes – allow time to cook after removing from heat. We recommend to brush these prawns with garlic butter before cooking.

Sustainability

Argentinian Prawns are a cold water, premium Shrimp species found in the South-West Atlantic from Brazil to Argentina.

These prawns will be one of a select few in the world certified to be sustainably and wild caught.

Not as expected, and not fresh

I am sorry to say that our packet of prawns was not fresh and a lot of them were soft and limp, and we decided not to consume them and discard them to prevent sea food poisoning. The rest of the order was fine.
