They are typically caught in the wild in the coastal waters of warm oceans and can grow up to 14 inches in length. King prawns are considered a delicacy due to their large size and sweet, succulent flavor. They can be cooked in a variety of ways, including grilling, sautéing, and deep-frying.

Preperation

King Prawns can be prepared in a variety of ways, including grilling, sautéing, deep-frying, broiling, boiling and stir-frying. Some popular ways to prepare king prawns include:

  1. Grilled: Marinate the prawns in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs, then grill them until they are pink and slightly charred.
  2. Sautéed: Sauté the prawns in butter or oil with garlic and herbs, until they are pink and cooked through.
  3. Deep-fried: Coat the prawns in a light batter or breadcrumbs and deep-fry them until they are golden brown and crispy.
  4. Broiled: Brush the prawns with butter or oil and broil them until they are pink and cooked through.
  5. Boiled: Boil the prawns in a flavorful broth or court-bouillon for a few minutes until they are pink and cooked through.
  6. Stir-fry: Stir-fry the prawns with vegetables and a flavorful sauce for a quick and easy dish.

It’s important to note that King Prawns should be cooked until they are pink and opaque, and the internal temperature should reach 145F. Overcooking can make the prawns tough and rubbery.

Serving

King Prawns can be served with a variety of sides and garnishes to complement their sweet and succulent flavor. Some popular options include:

  1. Rice: Serve the prawns over a bed of steamed white rice or with a flavorful rice dish like jambalaya or paella.
  2. Pasta: Toss the prawns with pasta and a sauce, such as a creamy Alfredo or a pesto sauce.
  3. Vegetables: Serve the prawns with a variety of steamed or sautéed vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, or bell peppers.
  4. Salad: Serve the prawns on top of a green salad, such as a Caesar salad or a mixed greens salad.
  5. Potatoes: Serve the prawns with roasted, mashed, or fried potatoes for a comforting and hearty dish.
  6. Bread: Serve the prawns with crusty bread or garlic bread for dipping in a flavorful sauce.
  7. Salsa or dipping sauce: Serve the prawns with a salsa or dipping sauce, such as a lemon butter sauce, a cocktail sauce, or a chili-lime sauce.
  8. Lemon wedges or lime wedges: Squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice over the prawns before serving for added freshness and acidity.

These are just a few options, but you can serve it with almost anything you enjoy, as long as it complements the flavors of the prawns.

Drinks

When pairing drinks with King Prawns, it’s best to choose beverages that complement the sweet and succulent flavors of the shrimp without overpowering them. Some popular drink options include:

  1. White Wine: A dry white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, or Vermentino can complement the flavors of the prawns and cut through the richness of butter or cream-based sauces.
  2. Sparkling Wine: A dry sparkling wine such as Prosecco or Cava can also pair well with the prawns, adding a touch of effervescence and acidity to the dish.
  3. Beer: A light, crisp beer such as a Pilsner or a Belgian Wit can also be a great pairing for the prawns, particularly when they are served with a spicy or herb-based sauce.
  4. Cocktail: A classic cocktail such as a Margarita or a G&T can also complement the flavors of the prawns, adding a touch of sweetness and acidity to the dish.
  5. Soft drinks: For non-alcoholic option, a sparkling water with lime can add a touch of acidity, and cleanse the palate between bites.

It’s important to keep in mind that personal preferences also play a role and you should choose what you like the most.
