Although the annual Spot Prawn Festival was a casualty of the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s not too late to cook up the catch of the season at home.
Kitsilano’s Fresh Ideas Start Here Fish Market at 2959 West Broadway has spot prawns in stock at $20 per pound and they have curb-side pick-up! There’s no telling how long the spot prawn season will continue, so don’t wait.
For spot prawn newbies, let me emphasize that these shrimp are worth it. They’re the largest species available in Canada’s waters, and are known for their sweet, delicate flavor and firm flesh.
Here are four spot prawn recipes that will inspire your inner chef.
- Quick Spot Prawn Red Curry
- Refuel’s Boiled Spot Prawns with Soya Chili Dipping Sauce
- Rob Feenie’s Sauteed Spot Prawns with Garlic, Jalapenos, Fresh Herbs and Spicy Mayo
- Gordon Ramsay’s Spot Prawns with Orange and Tequila
