You don't get them like this in Tesco's.

Two of these in a sandwich and you're stuffed.

So I guess asking for prawn cocktail would just be plain greedy?

Just to answer some questions raised on these beauts............

They were not caught in west sussex !

There was no trick photography

They were bought at the local fish stall in shellharbour NSW.....I think called giant north pacific or something........


I bet someone tells me that they were probably fed a diet of chemicals to get so big............all I can say is they tasted superb in some lovely bread....

when I get there I bet they are even better on a barbie.
