These prawns are boiled at see soon after they are caught, maintaining the integrity and quality of the prawn. The easiest way to thaw frozen prawns is to put them in an airtight container in the fridge a day before you need them. Keeping them in a sealed container prevents unnecessary cross contamination, dehydration and oxidisation. Thawing at low temperatures helps maintain quality.
If you don’t have much time, place your prawns in a waterproof plastic or zip lock bag and place them in a bowl or sink with cold water.
