Sicilian Gambero Rosso Prawns, Frozen, +/-450g
These are the largest Sicilian Red prawns available and are nothing short of a real delicacy. They are fished by net from up to 1,000 feet deep, and the water pressure they live under gives them an especially soft, melting texture and flavour. This makes them more costly than most small seafood, but the eating experience is worth every penny.
Gambero Rosso are so good that they need very little accompaniment, and a risotto might drown them - try them cooked and seasoned in your favourite way, and serve them as they are with a salad, or tossed in linguine with a little oil, chopped tomato and olives. Surprisingly, they go very well with fresh strawberries too.
