Pro Tips:

    Do not overcook your fish, keep a close eye on it as it nears the end of cooking. Carry-over heat will often finish the cook for you.

    Check underside of fish, between flesh and skin, and scrape to remove any gray areas you see. This is the fat, where strong flavor lies.

      Catch Sitka Seafoods Spot Prawns

      Sitka Spot Prawns

      The Lobster of Alaska

      Defrosting:

      Put desired amount of frozen prawns into a colander, sitting inside a larger bowl, in the sink. Run a thin stream of cold water over them for about 15 minutes.

      Cleaning:

      Sitka Spot Prawns are minimally handled, they are de-headed and frozen immediately at sea. Many still have their roe, which is a delicious delicacy we think you’ll fall in love with. If you prefer not to eat the roe, gently remove before cooking shell-on, or remove the shell and de-vein, effectively removing the roe.

      Cooking:

      There are many wonderful recipes you can find on our recipe blog. Our favorite way to enjoy the prawns is to sauté over medium heat in olive oil and garlic about one minute per side. The best way to determine whether or not your prawns are done is visual. Cook just until each prawn forms a ‘C’ not an ‘O.’ This will ensure perfect prawns every time!
