Just a quick post about Song Fish’s frozen Tiger Prawns since I’ve been using them for my CNY dishes this year.
I have a big family, and they are all prawn eaters. Naturally, I would want to serve them big, fresh, tiger prawns for my CNY meals (mee sua, steamboat).
The prawns were huge, no doubt. It’s a conversation starter, no doubt. But the skepticism started when someone peeled the prawns. Finally, it’s confirmed when someone took the first bite.
Fresh prawns should be crunchy and juicy. Song Fish’s prawns were powdery and lacking in the sweet prawn juice.
My choice next year? Back to basics – Chinatown tiger prawns. To avoid the crowd, I’m going to buy them two to three weeks in advanced and freeze them.
