Carabineros Whole Size 10-12 – Frozen 1-1.5kg
- Additional information
Carabineros are a large deep-sea prawn species that hail from the Eastern Atlantic into the Mediterranean Sea. They are renowned for their jumbo size and striking bright red color.
While their meat resides in the tail, their cephalothoraxes (head and body) are not to be overlooked and are excellent for making clear and creamed soups and sauces to which it adds flavor and red color. None of this prawn should go to waste, and some Europeans consider the flavor of their heads as a “delicacy”.
These are considered the crown jewel of the shrimp world. They are known for their flavorful juice contained in their heads that are released upon cooking, adding robust and unique seafood essence to your dishes, sauces and creams.
They are excellent in paellas and robust stews or simply poached, sautéed or steamed.
