Lets Talk Types of Prawns

PrawnsDO YOU REMEMBER WHEN PRAWNS WERE JUST, WELL, PRAWNS? 

You would not believe the array of prawns we have in stock here at the Fishery, cooked, raw, tail on, tail off, head on, head off, peeled, whole, de-veined and that's before we get into all the different sizes and varieties! In an effort to keep it simple here is our guide to the different types of prawns available on our website. 

CREVETTES

A cooked whole prawn, these are ideal for platters, picnics and the larger ones are spectacular on a prawn cocktail or a Paella. The smaller crevettes are the type that you would have as a pint of prawns in a pub. They are slightly sweeter than tiger prawns. Take a look at crevettes...

LANGOUSTINE

If you have ever wondered what scampi are made of, it's langoustine. They are raw and are delicious on a BBQ as the shells tend to roast and add more depth and flavour, you can also grill them if it's not BBQ weather and get the same effect. Take a look at langoustines...

TIGER PRAWNS

The tiger prawns are raw whole prawns so endlessly versatile. Fantastic in curries, great on a BBQ as they take on additional flavours really well. The shell can also be kept to make a stock or soup. Take a look at tiger prawns...

EASY PEEL PRAWNS

The best prawn for BBQ's, pop them on a skewer and they are incredible. They are raw, headless with the vein removed leaving a split in the shell making them easy to peel with little mess and they look good too. Take a look at easy peel prawns...

BROWN SHRIMP

Cooked and peeled, small and sweet and absolutely delicious. You can make these shrimps into potted shrimp or into a flavoured butter that goes well with steak or simply with bread, butter and a wedge of lemon. Take a look at brown shrimp...

COCKTAIL PRAWNS

A bit bigger than your average cocktail prawn, these cooked and peeled prawns are beautiful in a butty or in a simple prawn cocktail. They are really good in asian prawn dumplings and prawn toast. Take a look at cocktail prawns...
