The Kolikof Difference*:

$120.00 per lb.

DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: More like dwarf lobsters than shrimp—an incredible 2-3 per pound, Red Carabineros prawn are very large and known for their ruby red coloring that remains even after cooked. The fleshy, distinctive tail meat is divinely buttery. These distinct and somewhat rare prawn are native to Spain, the East Atlantic, and Morocco. These are often referred to by Spanish and Portuguese as simply Carabineros.

While Carabineros come in all different sizes, we only carry the most premium and succulent Jumbo Red Carabineros to ensure a meaty and juicy experience within every bite.

BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Sometimes called Scarlet Cardinal Prawns, the Carabineros Prawn earns its name from the brightly colored red uniforms of the Spanish Police (Carabineros). Their distinct bright-red color comes from their diet of pink plankton, which is native to their natural diet among the Spanish sea. 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: The most important thing to know about cooking red carabineros is to be sure to cook them slowly, and make sure not to overcook them. 

Do not boil Carabineros, this will dilute the taste and leave you with a subpar seafood experience. Instead, we suggest to steam, poach, grill, or sauté as you would lobster. 

To pan fry, heat your favorite olive oil or butter (we recommend Echiré French Salted Butter), in a pan. Add a generous amount of salt to the pan, and cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Stop cooking when the head is swollen. 

Enjoy the firm tail meat, and use the heads and shells for soup stock. True seafood connoisseurs will enjoy eating the legs and head. In Europe, the heads are often enjoyed as the ultimate delicacy of the sea.

QUANTITY: 1 Box (2.2 lb./1 kilo). Whole / Heads & Tails intact

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Spain

Keep Frozen. Thaw by refrigeration for 18-24 hours. Cook before serving.

Ingredients: Shrimp.

No chemicals or preservatives. All natural. GMO free.
