Spot Prawns Frozen 4.4 lbs
Spot Prawns from Canada
Spot prawns (Pandalus platyceros) are little sea creatures that have a delicate texture and amazingly sweet taste that many liken to a combination of the best lobster and fresh-churned butter. They are often closely associated with Santa Barbara, where they are harvested in limited amounts every summer. Some people, especially Californians, reflexively call spot prawns "Santa Barbara spot prawns." By the same token, many people in Alaska refer to them as Alaskan spot prawns. And they are all right because spot prawns grow and are harvested in much of the coastal North Pacific Ocean, from San Diego all the way up to Alaska. The bulk of the commercial fishery for spot prawns, however, is actually in British Columbia.
