  • About


    This box is by far the easiest way to add prawns to your culinary repertoire. Our prawn tails are caught in the cold Atlantic Ocean between South Africa and Argentina and are prepared and frozen on the boat for maximum flavour preservation. The prawns arrive at your door with the heads removed and partially deveined and ready for your next seafood feast.


    1 kg prawn tails (Between 15 and 30 prawns)

  • Instructions

    Your Prawn tails will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost (do not thaw under vacuum/pressure). Simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly. We are not able to butterfly or de vein prawns, as this would require defrosting and refreezing, which effects quality. These prawn tails are delivered shell on and vein in.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

    Our prawns are sourced from an Argentinian fishery that is in the final stages of MSC certification. This is in line with efforts by this body to help reduce the impact fisheries have on species populations and ocean ecology, while also finding new ways to reduce harm to seabirds and bycatch.

    ECOSYSTEM IMPACT : Medium high

    GEAR USED : Trawl





  • Fishwife Recipes

    Vietnamese Spring Rolls

    Prawns can be fried, boiled, grilled or braaied, but our partner site The Fishwife is here to share a recipe with Asian inspirations. You will need:

    • Prawns
    • Vermicelli Rice noodles
    • Cucumber
    • Carrot
    • Red Pepper
    • Coriander
    • Rice Paper Wraps
    • Hoisin Sauce
    • Peanut Butter


    1. Blanch the prawns in a pot of boiling water for approximately 3 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.
    2. In a bowl, cover the rice noodles with boiling water and allow to soften for about 2 minutes before straining and setting aside.
    3. Julienne the carrot, cucumber and red pepper and set aside in separate bowls.
    4. Remove the coriander leaves from stalks and set aside.
    5. Find a dish large enough for the rice paper wraps, add hot water, submerge one wrap, and allow the wrap to soften for about 15-20 seconds. Remove the wrap and set on a clean flat surface.
    6. Add small amounts of the prawn, carrot, cucumber, red pepper, rice noodles and coriander, roll the wrap halfway, tuck in the sides and continue rolling to create a sealed spring roll.
    7. Repeat the process to make as many as you like.
    8. To make the dipping sauce, add 2 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce to 1 Tbsp peanut butter.
    9. Enjoy cold.


    No quantities are given as the recipe is scalable, but you will need about 3 prawns and a tablespoon of each filling per roll.

          Very tasty Prawns

          Enjoy those very much. Amazing taste. Cleaning takes a little time but worth the effort

          Excellent service, fresh seafood

          We’re always excited to order from Greenfish even though we also eagerly chase down freshly caught fish off boats when we have been snorkeling. Greenfish delivers fresh, excellently prepared fish and delivers rapidly and reliably. Cheaper and faster than heading to Woolworths I often feel. We eat frozen fish about twice a week for up to 6 months and it’s still fabulously fresh. Yum!

          Excellent quality prawns

          We used these prawns to make prawn sosaties and they were fresh and delicious. The meat is flavourful and tender and the tails are super easy to clean. The tails are nice and big which makes this a perfect buy. We spiced the prawn with the Japanese 7 spice also sold by Greenfish and I would highly recommend the spice too!

          Best and freshest prawns we have ever ordered!

          Definitely beats the store bought quality prawns. The prawns were frozen as per the description, yet when defrosted were clearly very freshly frozen as the meat wasn’t at all floury. Absolutely stunning seafood, we will definitely order this again. Love the convenience of same day delivery too.

          First order with Greenfish

          I was happy with my order. I ordered the prawn tails on the 24th Dec after 11H00 so I did not expect same day delivery. I received my delivery on the 28th. They were a good size and all together there was 45 prawn tails. I was a bit disappointed that although it said they were partially deveined they were not. As the heads had been removed the section of vein from the head to the tail was gone but they had not been cut open or any portion of the vein in the tail removed. I just felt the term partially deveined was not an accurate description but on the whole I was happy no will order again.

          Brilliant prawns

          Unable to get Mozambican prawns in Cape Town, desperate for similar quality never available in Vanamei and other Asian prawns available. Tried the GREENFISH PRAWN TAILS seriously good quality and delicious and great value for money. Should never have doubted anything from Greenfish they rock, always a fan and a client

          We dont buy farmed prawns from thailand or vietnam…

          We dont buy farmed prawns from thailand or vietnam (antibiotics) these are wild prawns from argentina.. good size and healthier. Prepare with lots of garlic and dont forget to add some salt when ready..

          Yummy scrummy delish!

          To say we were impressed is an understatement. Easy online ordering, speedy delivery and the most insanely delicious prawns imaginable. All I can say is that I'm happy to have ordered 2kg's instead of 1! Will definitely be ordering again. Thanks GREENFISH
