  • Grilled Tiger Prawns: Marinated with herbs and spices, the prawns are grilled to enhance their natural flavours and add a smoky dimension.

  • High-quality protein: Tiger prawns are an excellent source of lean protein, essential for muscle growth and repair, while being low in calories and fat.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: While not as rich in omega-3s as some other seafood, tiger prawns still provide a source of these essential fatty acids that support heart and brain health.
  • Vitamins and minerals: Tiger Prawns contain essential nutrients such as selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B12, and iodine, which contribute to overall health and well-being.
