Tiger prawns are large-bodied prawns that are native to the Indo-West Pacific Ocean. Tiger prawns get their common name from the stripes that cover their shell. This species is a highly valuable seafood species. They are the most popular prawn variety in the world. Each plump prawn has a buttery texture and a firmness that makes them ideal for sautéing, BBQ'ing, grilling or anything else you can think of. These will need to be de-shelled and de-veined before cooking. Only 5-7 prawns in a bag of 1kg. You know they're big!
