Spot prawns are the largest shrimp found in Canada's west coast waters. The prawn's body colour is usually reddish brown or tan with white horizontal bars on the carapace (shell) and distinctive white spots on the first and fifth abdominal segments.
The spot prawn is known for its sweet, delicate flavour and firm texture. It is very popular in the Japanese market for sashimi. The larger sizes are also great for the bbq.
