plump and tasty

Have bought these several times now and have found them to be plump and juicy. Trick is not to over cook them

poor shelf life

When fresh, the quality of this product is good. However, they are often not fresh when they are delivered. They smell and taste a bit off.

eat on day of purchase

For the second, and now last time, I have had these delivered and had to throw them away the next day. They turn pink in my fully functioning fridge, smell and can not be eaten without fear of poisoning. Come on Ocado, sort this out.

these were less than the size of a 10p when cooked. Prawn - but NOT king prawn!

Short shelf life

The 2 days guaranteed was false, we only had 1 day. So I froze them as soon as they arrived. Apart from that, nice meaty prawns.




If dishes were royalty, this classic seafood dish would surely be the King of Spain.

Cook's Notes Use some of the leftover marinade to brush over the prawns while they're cooking. Cheat You could use the leftovers in a salad, or a fish pie.
