Research indicates seafood contains between 10-100 times higher levels of Omegas 3's than beef, lamb, and chicken. King prawns are naturally high in Omega 3's and polyunsaturated fatty acids, niacin, iron, and zinc, which are proven to assist in brain function, healthy skin, and metabolism. Prawns are naturally high in protein, and are a great low calorie snack or meal option.
The Australian Ocean king prawns are rich in flavour with a low to medium oiliness, moist flesh, and medium texture. Prawns are delicious steamed, poached, deep-fried, stir fried, grilled, or barbecued. Australian king prawns maintain their texture when cooked in curries or soups. Prawns can be marinated and cooked with the shell off, or marinated and cooked with the shell on to maximise flavour.
