Iceland King Prawns in Spicy Soy Sauce Review

REVIEW

New at Iceland are these King Prawns in spicy Soy Sauce and are part of the Stir Through range. First off the bat you’ll notice that it doesn’t really look like the picture on the cover. Instead of a small bit of thick sauce, my one was drowned in a watery grave, I followed the instructions but there you go. The aroma is strong, its like you’re in a Chinese Takeaway with the blends of Asian spice in the air. There were 19 King Prawns in my dish but I wouldn’t exactly call them King Prawns as they look more like shrimps as they measure about 1″ X 1″.

The initial taste is of a very slight sweet Asian herb and spice flavour followed by the dry and chewy and almost tastelessness of the shrimp, sorry King Prawn. As for the heat from the sauce its barely noticeable(about low). The shrimps are terrible, even for microwave heating, maybe the oven would have been better but I can’t imagine it would be that much better, but this is really poor, poor quality ingredients, poor taste and not enjoyable at all and definitely not worth £2.49.
