Spot prawns are the largest of the 7 commercial species of shrimp found in Canada’s west coast waters known for their sweet, delicate flavour and firm texture. B.C’s first shipment of these succulent beauties hits the docks on May the 6th and Executive Chef Robert Clark of C Restaurant is slated to get the first shipment.
