Why we like prawns

When it comes to high-quality protein, prawns are right up there on the list.  They provide some of the most important vitamins and minerals that you need in a healthy diet. Surprisingly enough they are low in calories and also made up of extremely healthy cholesterol.

You have a wide choice in recipes and ways to cook prawns. You can either steam, boil, bake or grill them.  Prawns have a relatively neutral taste profile, so you can really experiment with flavour and seasoning when you cook them.  Adding them to your diet on a regular basis will only help you.
