Disappointed with these prawns. I defrosted overnight in the fridge, then drained for an hour, but alas they were completely tasteless! Heaven knows what they would have been like had they not been the 'Finest'. I still have another bag in my freezer, bought a few weeks later so possibly from a different batch. If they are any better, I will post again because I do like to be fair.
Freezer STAPLE for me
Tried these prawns for the first time a few weeks ago ... I like adding a few extra prawns to things so just wanted a pack to keep in the freezer ... I prefer to buy North Atlantic prawns (having seen a scary documentary on prawn fishing in Asia) ... I found these to be perfectly acceptable ... I defrost them in a bowl with some strong kitchen roll in the fridge This absorbs any 'water' left from defrosting (give them a gentle squeeze in paper)... so I did NOT find them 'watery' or 'tasteless' or 'chemical tasting' ... They certainly tasted of prawn to me ... They do the job ... If I was having say a prawn salad I would buy fresh prawns from a deli I wouldn't use these but for sandwiches cocktails prawn pasta etc ... They're ideal
Don't like the fact that they smell fishy - if fresh when frozen, they shouldn't.

I really like these. I put a tiny bit of oil on them, then put in the air fryer for 3-4 minutes straight from the freezer. Nice to not have to care whether they're cooked through, just that they're warm enough to be nice.

Had high hopes after reading the reviews back in March so very disappointed to find they were rubbery and tasteless after defrosting
not very nice fresh ones are better
small chewy spongy some had a slightly strange marking to them , all in all a waste of money will not buy them again
not pleasant .
very fishy flavour not good .
From the other reviews, I had good hopes for these prawns. Instead, they were very small, like shrimp, very soft, spongy, falling apart, and .... tasteless. Completely tasteless. They tasted vaguely of fishy ice water, and their texture was like oatmeal, not the crisp bite of a freshly-frozen prawn. You've lost a customer.
If I am making a prawn sandwich, or prawn salad these are my go to prawns. Really nice tasty and juicy.
