Do you like prawns? I love prawns. Do you like BIG prawns? I love BIG BIG BIG prawns. Haha. My good friend Susan sent me 2kg of these XXL sized black tiger prawns. (image as below, yeah that’s my actual left hand since I needed my right hand to take the photo) At the time that she ordered, these XXL-sized black tiger prawns were still moving around in water. It’s being farmed in sea water farms in Manjung, Perak. Within 24 hours of her order, these prawns have arrived at my doorstep here in Klang Valley.

They said they are only temporarily helping farmer during this period. You may find their restaurants and company’s information in this link https://lajuiceria.com.my/ I have asked for you. The small-time farmer does not have a Facebook page yet… I do think they need to quickly change this though.

From my understanding, due to the limited available quantity, you may want to order a few days in advance before you actually will want to eat XX-sized black tiger prawns yeah. This is how one website describes the black tiger prawn meat: “Unlike cold water shrimp, whose meat can be watery and sometimes taste bland, warm water Black Tiger shrimp have a distinctly bold, sweet, firm-textured meat that has earned them the honour of being called the ‘poor man’s lobster.’ Yes, I am a poor man with rich man’s taste for lobster! Happy proceeding to buy yeah.
My first dish from this? Image below. Tomorrow’s gonna be Tom Yum steam… or Garlic Steam…
