Spot prawn season is finally upon us again. Learn everything you need to know about buying, preparing and cooking with spot prawns.
Every year from May to June, British Columbians run to their favorite fish monger for the opening of spot prawn season. Suddenly, spot prawns are seen on every menu in town, cooked 100 different ways. It’s a glorious and delicious time to be living on the West Coast.
Spot prawns have a rich, buttery flavor that has been described as a cross between dungeness crab and lobster. Not only do they taste heavenly, but they’re sustainable, too. Spot prawns are endorsed by both SeaChoice and Oceanwise.
In the spirit of the season, we’ve assembled all the information you need to know about spot prawns—from what to look for when buying, how to freeze them, to everything in between. Soon you’ll be cooking spot prawns like a pro and if you’re smart, freezing them to enjoy throughout the summer.
Herbs and greens don't just go on your plate. You can create amazing concoctions in the ol' blender as well that not only taste great, but they're damn healthy as well.
