BC Spot Prawns - just off the boat! Joel Collier and his crew just wrapped up their prawn season (closed Monday June 21) and brought in the last of their catch. Now that they have filled all their pre-orders, they are sharing their catch with us.
Melissa and Joel offer frozen at sea spot prawn tails. The prawns are caught, tailed, rinsed and flash frozen in seawater all within a couple hours of being caught. Their tubs are Ocean Run which means whatever sizes of prawns they caught that day. Each tub has a net weight of 1 lb of tails and the sizes range from Medium to Extra-Large with the odd Jumbo. The average prawn size of each tub is Large.
