The wild B.C. spot prawn is the largest of the seven commercial species of shrimp found on the west coast of Canada with females often exceeding nine inches in length. They are most recognizable for their reddish brown colour (which turns bright pink when cooked), defining white spots on the tail and white horizontal bars on the carapace. These spot prawn tails are frozen at sea in salt water.
Defrost under cold water. Consume raw, steam or boil in salted water, or grill whole.
