So you want the best prawn? The largest and the tastiest? The good news is that you have just found the right product. Our fresh Tiger prawns, also known as “King of Prawns” are the most widely distributed and commercially marketed prawns in the world. Because of the high demand and low supply, fresh Tiger prawns are being farmed worldwide to minimize the gap in supply and demand. However, at Anbar Fish, you will only get wild and organic fresh Tiger Prawn caught from the Arabian Sea.

Unlike cold water prawns, whose meat can be watery and sometimes taste bland, Arabian Sea Tiger Prawns have a distinctly bold, sweet, firm-textured meat that has earned them the honor of being called the ‘poor man’s lobster’. Tiger Prawn are usually priced higher than white Prawn but that is primarily because Tiger Prawn grow to larger sizes than White Prawn
