King Prawns are one of the most versatile seafoods you can purchase. Whether in a soup, curry, accompanying a rice dish or nestling in the midst of fresh salad, King Prawns elevate the dish to another level.
Firstly, don’t confuse King Prawns with their smaller family member’s freshwater prawns (sandwich prawns), or their larger tiger prawn counterparts. Typically, freshwater prawns are used as a sumptuous ingredient in a prawn cocktail starter, rice dishes and many other culinary creations. When it comes to AO Seafoods, we offer 3 sizes of King’s for you: Large, Extra Large and XXL.
How do you choose which king prawn size is best for you?
Well, the first aspect you may want to consider is how many king prawns you need. The sizing terminology used with these kinds of prawns is such to help consumers know how many they will receive, per kilogram. So, our large prawn, also known as 16/20 (Approx 16-20 King Prawns per kilogram bag). XL 13/15, and XXL 8/12.
The second factor to think about is what meal you want the prawns to complement. A large prawn will look and taste great in a Thai green curry, our XL prawns go great on a seafood kebab and why not throw an XXL on the barbecue? Of course, the important thing is the King Prawn, and these will not disappoint how, or wherever you decide to use them.
