Difficult to source and harder still to harvest, Spot Prawns are a uniquely scrumptious wild shellfish full of sweet flavor combined with rich umami savoriness and a beautiful white texture that is firm to the bite without being chewy.

Celebrate the holidays with delicious 2017 Spot Prawns

2 lb packs $50 each

Festive recipe using peeled and boiled prawns provide an exciting and talked about delicacy of the ocean that remains wildly abundant in in Southeast Alaska.  Harvested using pot trap gear, spot prawns are managed for generations of sustainable seafood resource  access.

Spot Prawns are sold as tails only and are easy to peel once cooked while not terribly difficult to peel raw.  Owning to their characteristics of freshness and Otolith’s commitment to superior quality, spot prawns shells are as attached to their prawns’ bodies as much as they day they were harvested.  Thawing shellfish under refrigeration at least a few up to 7 days before cooking will make shells easier to remove and peel.  The hard shells of a large prawn are easy to grasp and the firm texture of the prawns simplifies the task while it is pinched from its shell.   No deveining required. Approximate time to peel 20 large prawns:  6-7 minutes

Seasoned Prawns Boil: Approximately 1 cup of liquid for every 6 prawns.

For 2 lb recipe

Ingredients:

2 lbs Spot Prawns  – thawed and peeled with shells reserved

4 cups water

2-3 cups white wine or lemon juice, pilsner beer, or vegetable stock

1 small onion quartered

3 celery stalks quartered into shorter lengths

1 carrot quartered lengthwise

1 garlic clove smashed

1 Tbs peppercorns

1 Tbs salt – optional

1 sprig rosemary

1/4 bunch of any fresh or old green herbs

1 Tbs lemon zest or peel – no pith

and old vegetables beside beets [do not stain the prawns] can go into the pot at your discretion

In a large sauce pot, combine all ingredients except prawns, cover and bring to a boil.  Add prawn shells to the pot and stir.  Add prawns to the pot, cover and cook until done.  Approximately 10-15 minutes.  Give the prawns a stir to make sure all tails are curled slightly, fully cooked and opaque throughout.  Remove from the heat.  Allow to cool slightly and refrigerate in a container until ready to serve, at least one hour a head.

Prawns can be peeled up to 6 hours before cooking.  Prawn shells are optional in this recipe and can be frozen raw and boiled at another time to make stock for rice or soup. To make a stock from prawn shells repeat the recipe above except omitting the prawns and allow stock to cool completely before straining the stock to remove all of the ingredients except its liquid.

Best Homemade cocktail sauce: 4 parts ketchup, 1 part horseradish, 1/2 part fresh lemon juice, 1/8 part Worcestershire sauce or chopped anchovies. Serve chilled. May be made up to 1 day ahead.
