King Prawns are popular due to their rich flavour and moist flesh and can be purchased either cooked or raw. Suggested coatings include batters (regular or tempura) with a touch of saffron. Appropriate sauces and accompaniments for king prawns include chilli, coriander, citrus, garlic, curry (light), ginger, tropical fruits, burnt butters, basil (pesto), mayonnaise and vinaigrettes. Choosing a wine to accompany king prawns very much depends on your cooking method. For example moderately robust white wines would be ideal if the accompaniment is a mayonnaise based tartare sauce.
