Healthy prawn recipes
Prawns are a delicious addition to many dishes and are packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein. A 85 gram serve of cooked prawns deliver roughly 23 grams of protein. Prawns also contain minimal saturated fat per serving, making it a lean source of protein and a heart-healthy option.
Use these pro buying tips to get the tastiest prawns:
- Seek out frozen prawns with the heads off or peel-and-eat that have been individually quick frozen. This will save you plenty of time in the kitchen peeling them.
- Look through the clear window on the bag for signs of freezer burn (you'll want to avoid that pack!).
- Thaw them before cooking for the best possible outcome!
- Look for Australian, sustainably sourced prawns where possible.
