Blue Prawn - Tenshi no Ebi, Flash Frozen (New Caledonia) - 2.2 lb
Individually flash frozen, sashimi quality, 2.2 lb per pack; packed and shipped frozen, some thawing will naturally occur during transit
These blue prawns hail from the pristine lagoons of New Caledonia, where they are farmed in small amounts with only one harvest a year. Their distinctive blue color derives from a carefully monitored diet, and results in an incomparable taste. They have an almost melt in your mouth texture and soft and sweet when raw, and firm and juicy with a sweet and sour taste when cooked. These are sashimi grade and we personally prefer them raw, but you can enjoy them either way. These are perhaps the only non-indigenous shrimp to be unanimously judged as sashimi quality in Japan.
