    Yes, they are fine.

    They dont provide much protein per 100 grams, but yes, they are a nice food to eat.

    I eat loads each day along with other seafood such as mackerel as my main source of protine along with whey after workouts.

    Does anyone else find them great with differnt sauces such as sweet and sour etc?

    Thankyouplease

    17.1g of protine per 100g
    81 kcal per 100g.

    not too bad nutrition wise.

    Thankyouplease

    I was just waiting for someone to mention cholesterol!
    Half a pound of shrimps (US prawns?) contains less (~300mg) dietary cholesterol than 2 full medium size eggs (~400mg, which has no significant effect on serum cholesterol in healthy people when eaten each day).
    How much prawns do you intend to eat each day?

    7kg....

    Great food, one of the few meaty things that the missus will eat so we have them a lot. I always go for the raw tiger prawns, or the sainsbury's "So Organic" ones when they're on offer.

    Sorry for rising this back from the dead but I eat about 400-600g of prawns per day - I tend to prefer them to chicken (cooked chicken is great, prepared chicken that you eat a few hours later always taste crap IMO). Should I be cutting back and maybe introducing more chicken into the diet?

    According to the pack (Sainsbury's) 21g of protein per 100g but now the cholesterol figures are worrying me slightly due to the high content I eat.

    I have some fabulous humongous ones from my forzen fish man. In the shell they're up to 8 inch long and when shelled they're the size of a sausage. The great thing is they can be cooked from frozen but the down side is they cost approx £5 each

    Get down to a Costco Kitty - massive frozen raw tiger prawns £15 a kilo. Now they're not 8 inchers, something like 4 I'd say, but 5 or 6 of them is plenty in a nice meal

    love em, think they are great, only problem is i think ive recently developed an allergy to them. had some about a month ago and about 30mins later i came up with massive lumpy, itchy rash all over my face, neck, shoulders and chest. it was roasting too. had to take anti-histamine and wrap my body in wet towels to reduce the inflammation as it can cause the windpipe to close.

    gutted about that. havnt had them since.

    Life's full of challenges. Give each your all & you can always hold your head high with pride.

    yup, I wouldnt say they were ideal nutritionally. High in cholesterol.


    edited to say it seems I'm wrong.

    Costco also do a bag of scallops (1kg) for 14.99 - they taste absolutely out of this world. I wonder what the nutrional value on them are.. ;)

    With regards to the comment about being allergic - did you have anything else with the prawns? I recently found out I am extremely allergic to tartare sauce (same symptoms as you describe).
