Product specification and volume required

Brown Tiger Prawns and Western King Prawns are the prize catch from the waters of Shark Bay in Australia’s northwest.

Western King Prawns

Western King Prawns (Penaeus latisculcatus) are found in temperate and tropical waters around Australia.  They become mature at the age of six to seven months and live for up to four years.

Shark Bay King Prawns have a rich flavour and medium to firm texture. The flesh is translucent when raw and white with pinkish bands when cooked. 

Suitable for steaming, poaching, deep-fry, pan-fry, stir-fry, grill and barbecue. Like all seafood, prawns require very little cooking and when overcooked will become tough.

Shark Bay Tiger Prawns have a sweet, medium flavour, low to medium oiliness and moist, firm texture. Flesh is translucent when raw and white to pink with pinkish bands when cooked. 

Suitable for steaming, poaching, deep-fry, pan-fry, stir-fry, grill and barbecue. Like all seafood, prawns require very little cooking and when overcooked will become tough.
