One of the most sought after prawns in professional kitchens worldwide, beautiful Carabineros are a large deep-sea prawn species that hail from Eastern Atlantic into the Mediterranean Sea. Known by a plethora of names, to the Spanish and Portuguese as Carabineros, to the English as Scarlet Shrimp or Cardinal Prawns, and to the French as the Crevette Imperiale, they are renowned for their jumbo size and striking bright red colour.
Carabinero prawns are large prawns and these large carabineros are bigger still. Each box contains between 10 and 12 prawns. Whole and head on, they are individually quick frozen on the boats to ensure their freshness and packaged in 1Kg boxes. Each Carabinero weighs around 80 to 100 grams.

But wasn’t disappointed. Cooked carefully on the bbq, great texture, sweet tasting and luxurious, a real treat.
Carabineros expensive but worth every penny.
we had the Carabinero prawns last weekend, they were delicious, so tasty i cooked
half in garlic butter and other half in miso butter, a special treat for my hubby
I recently had my first meal with the Carabinero XL Prawns and I really enjoyed the Prawns. They are very tasty and I would recommend these Prawns to anyone who enjoys large prawns. This is my special treat to myself as someone who really enjoys prawns.
