Warm Water King Prawns

Litopenaeus vannamei

Warm water king prawns are so-called decapods, with five pairs of legs. The group includes also North Sea brown shrimps, crayfish, lobsters, and edible crabs. This species originates from tropical regions such as East & South East Asia, but is commonly also produced in aquaculture. It can reach a length of up to 23 cm. The body is elongated, laterally compressed and translucent with a milky brown coloration.

Our king prawns come from an aquaculture and are fed a special diet which promotes health and well-being. Once the prawns have grown to our desired size, they are then harvested fresh and frozen as quickly as possible to lock in the freshness and nutrients. Prawns are low in fat.

King prawns are available in our Birds Eye Inspirations range and in our Stir Your Senses range.
