After its successful inaugural year in 2021, National Prawn Day has firmly placed its mark on the food calendar. 

Proudly initiated by Tropic Co. National Prawn Day™ is all about celebrating prawns for their unique taste, vibrant colour, range of health benefits and all-round legendary status.

National Prawn Day™ is held on the third Saturday of March EVERY year. Created to educate on prawn seasonality and get us all eating more Aussie prawns when they are fresh and in season.

This year National Prawn Day™ falls on the 19th March. We’re hosting events across the country to help encourage every Australian to celebrate their love for prawns in ‘The Great Australian Prawn Peel Off Attempt’ at participating fishmongers.  With free Tropic Co Aussie Tiger Prawns to sample and an iconic Tropic Co stubby cooler gift with purchase up for grabs.

Everyone will have the chance to show off their prawn peelings skills and even more excitingly, potentially become a record-breaker with the Guinness World Records. Last year’s winner declared the closed attempt, undressed 14 prawns in one minute.

If you think you have got what it takes, challenge yourself to beat this record time of peeling 21 prawns under one minute and score not only the 2022 Great Australian Prawn Peel off title but also the Guinness World Record.

So what are you waiting for? Get down to one of your local events, crank the BBQ up and grab life by the prawn this National Prawn Day™
