Chile prawns


Species: Heterocarpus reedi

Our Chilean prawns are, as the name suggests, fished in Chile by coastal fishing boats, which are typically only at sea one day at a time. This is because the Pacific Ocean off Chile is so deep and cold that the fishermen do not have to sail for many hours to reach the fishing grounds. The prawns are boiled, hand peeled and thus frozen within 24 hours of being caught. It also helps to highlight the beautiful color and texture as well as the good taste that make this product so unique.

We offer Chilean shrimp in the following packages:

In brine:

90g to 6500g drained weight
