The black tiger prawn is readily recognisable by its long, sleek, and distinct black and yellowish stripes that extend down its body. Large tiger prawns tails make great hors d’oeuvres when grilled on skewers or in traditional shrimp cocktails. And they can tolerate tossing with other ingredients, they’re great with pasta or in casseroles. Because of their heavy skins, black tigers cook faster than the other prawn types. If you overcook them, they will become tough, so keep an eye on them. Tiger prawns should be consumed within 2days of thawing for optimum quality, but they can be refrigerated for 3 days.
When opposed to the pronounced flavour of ocean-harvested Gulf shrimp, farmed black tiger shrimp has a moderate, almost mild flavour. Tiger shrimp meat is also smoother than other shrimp species when cooked. The cooked shell turns a vibrant red colour. When cooked peeled, the white flesh has an orange tinge, and when cooked in the shell, it turns red. The flesh should be juicy and mildly resilient. Prawns may become robust, dry, and fibrous due to incorrect storage temperatures, re-freezing, or prolonged frozen storage.
