Kuruma Ebi is considered by the Japanese to be the tastiest prawn.

Most commonly used for Edomae-style sushi, kuruma-ebi is a high-end ingredient in Japanese restaurants.

Unlike most frozen prawns in the market, are kept alive until the very last moment, and cooked only minutes before being served.

Which means that they are blast frozen when the prawns are still alive. Which makes them taste as good as when you order them live!

The taste of Kuruma Ebi is more savory than sweet, and therefore not the most suitable for eating raw.

For sushi, skewer the shrimp onto bamboo sticks and boil them for a short time, until they turn into a bright red color. Then when the leftover head is grilled with salt, it can be served as a tasty snack and special treat.

But you can enjoy other dishes such as grilled salt and tempura.
