We source a range of quality farmed crustaceans from all around the world. Our juicy black tiger prawns (Penaeus monodon) are a great example. They have a blue, black & brown colour, with a distinct striped banding. Their texture is firm with a clean, somewhat sweet flavour. When they’re cooked, the meat turns white and their black stripes become a brilliant bright red.
Black tiger prawns are cultivated using modernised farming techniques. They’re grown in ponds up to 1 hectare in size, with the average pond holding nearly 15 metric tonnes of prawns. Each pond is harvested twice per year, on average. While farming is seasonal, we work closely with our suppliers to ensure a year round supply.
