Saraspe Family Tips: Butterflied and grilled with a little butter might just be our favorite way to enjoy fresh spot prawns. If you’re not grilling, the same method can be achieved beneath the broiler. Just be sure to watch the prawns closely so they don’t overcook! For delicate preparations such as carpaccio, aguachile, or simple sashimi, we recommend removing the heads and shells from fresh, whole spot prawns. Don’t trash the heads and shells as they make for a beautiful stock or a tasty appetizer of fried heads! Check out some of our favorite recipes from our blog!
