Prawn sizes

Just like us, Tiger Prawns come in all different shapes and sizes!

Just like us, Tiger Prawns come in all different shapes and sizes. Prawns are graded by kilo but an easy way to work out how many prawns per kilo is to simply double the grade.

SMALL 31-40/lb = 68-88/kg

MEDIUM 21-30/lb = 46-66/kg

LARGE 16-20/lb = 35-44/kg

X-LARGE 10-15/lb = 22-34/kg

JUMBO U10 = <22/kg

So the smaller the number, the bigger the prawn!
