    FRESH FROZEN AT SEA TO LOCK IN FLAVOUR

    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.

    CONTENTS

    1 kg prawn tails (Between 15 and 30 prawns)

  • Instructions

    Your box 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    Preparation:

    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.

    Notes:

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

          Prawns

          Good value for money being headless. Also great that they were semi cleaned. Flash frozen freshness - crunchy and sweet just out of the sea flavor.

          Great, fresh and juicy prawn tails. Would have been great if they were deveined as well, so after defrosting one has to obviously do that first before cooking.

          Perfect Prawns

          It took a little more time to prepare the prawn tails as it required deveining, but it was totally worth it! Tasted fantastic in the starter it was used in. Pan-fried in butter with garlic and chili served with gnocchi. Delicious!

          Prawn Tails

          These tails were so good when we first had them, we immediately ordered another 5 portions. Four of us shared the 1kg pack and all of us said they were the best we have ever eaten. I do take some credit for the way I cooked them on gas - power outage for load-shedding - and our guests agreed. Can’t wait to try the next batch.

          Prawn Tails with Portion 36 Olive Oil

          The prawn tails from Greenfish are fresh and very tasty. The texture is firm and they are easy to clean. We grill them quickly on the braai carefully avoiding overcooking. We serve them with Fresh lemon and some of our own Portion 36 Extra ****** Olive oil. Delicious!
