Tiger Prawn, scientifically known as Penaeus monodon, is a popular member of the crustacean family.
Best cooked with shell-on to retain the juiciness. Texture of meat is crunchier and tougher, ideal for baking and BBQ.
The size of the prawn is dictated by the number of prawns per kg. In this case, 16/20 means that there are 16 to 20 prawns in 1 kg net weight. Hence the smaller the number, the bigger the prawn.
