Spot prawns, also known as amaebi or sweet shrimp, are cold water shrimp prized for their exceptionally sweet flavor and creamy texture. They have a taste that is reminiscent of langoustine, fresh butter, and lobster. Spot prawns are best eaten raw or cooked minimally for optimal flavor. Their sweetness is lost when exposed to an overabundance of heat. Cook spot prawns for no longer than 45 seconds.
These are large size 30-32 spot prawns that have been flash-frozen at sea immediately after being caught. They are fished from the pristine waters near British Columbia, Canada.
