Prawns are a brilliant source of protein as they are 100% complete, meaning they contain important amino acids such as Taurine and Argo. These king prawns are packed with vitamin B12, which is necessary for energy production and is abundant in the sea, and have plenty of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can help maintain healthy skin and hair!
