Bay Prawns have a delicious, sweet taste. They are relatively inexpensive and available seasonally. They can be purchased either cooked or raw and are suited to most cooking methods. To capture the sweetness of freshly-cooked Bay Prawns it is important to select a dry white wine that will emphasise the prawn’s sweetness by introducing contrasting flavours.
