How many to buy?
For a meal size portion of prawns allow approximately 300g of whole prawns per person – they are surprisingly filling
Getting them home
Ideally if you know you’re going to buy prawns, take an esky with ice and place them straight in after you purchase them.
If you don’t have an esky, don’t panic, they should be fine for the ride home, especially if your retailer can add a little ice to the bag, but be sure not to leave them sitting in a hot car for too long.
Where to buy
Australian Grown Prawns are available at most seafood retail outlets throughout Australia. If your local seafood retailer does not stock them, let them know they can be easily sourced.
