Mazara Red Prawn L Size
Don Gambero’s red prawns live at a depth of about 700 meters, where the strong sea currents contribute to making the meat compact. The high level of evaporation that the Mediterranean Sea undergoes in the hot season, on the other hand, enriches the shrimp with those mineral salts that give them an unmistakable flavor. Historically the symbol of an entire community – that of Mazara del Vallo, in southwestern Sicily – this product, characterized by a refined, sweet and delicate flavor, is known around the world as an Italian excellence.
Ammaru Russu, the name given to red shrimp in the Sicilian dialect, is also distinguished by its low caloric content and high iodine content: a mineral that helps maintain the proper functioning of our metabolism and regulates our energy levels. Like all Don Gambero products, as soon as they are caught, the seafood is immediately blast chilled directly on board certified fishing vessel laboratories, with a very high thermal shock. In order to maintain the full freshness of the product, the processing is carried out very quickly without rinsing and icing. The shrimp are then packaged in special trays that guarantee the structure, flavor, aroma and nutritional values of the product.
In 300 g skin pack and individually frozen (IQF).
