Obsiblue

£60

With an iridescent deep blue tail, the Obsiblue prawn is an extraordinary source of inspiration. A rare species, the Obsiblue is a naturally blue delicate crustacean.

Its colour is a reflection of turquoise, pure and crystal water where it is farmed. It has very long antennae and it is a perfect food for all seafood lovers. Considered as luxury seafood, rare and precious, the Obsiblue is a product of the sea which is easy and convenient to use. With a special charm, it blends with rare products and amazing flavours.

A consequence of an unlikely encounter between a rare species and an exceptional environment, Obsiblue is a healthy food with an original taste.

Farmed in the largest lagoon, on the west coast of New Caledonia, the Obsiblue benefits from real biodiversity and a superb environment, listed in the World Heritage of Unseco.

To respect the natural growth of the species, the farming method is ultra-soft and its harvest traditional. Less than a hundred tons are harvested each year at their maturity by small producers who have been committed for 30 years in a production process similar to that of a great vintage.

Usage: Its incomparable taste, soft, slightly and sweet and its melting raw flesh, firm and juicy when cooked, making it a long tasting in the mouth, with a sweet and sour taste, particularly appreciated by chefs and connoisseurs alike.

The fineness and softness of Obsiblue stand out when raw, as Carpaccio, tartar or marinade in lime juice for a delicious ceviche. They are also delicious when pan-fried or barbequed and served with fresh lime juice, chopped chilli and coriander.

Net: 1kg 21-30 Raw Obsilbue Prawns Size XXL 

Storage: Keep frozen at -18°C until the expiry date mentioned on the pack or Keep refrigerated for 24 hours before consumption

PACKAGING

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.

To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice.  These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.

FROZEN PRODUCTS

The vast majority of shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this.  In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in your freezer.  Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.

All frozen products arrive in extremely high quality, fully insulated packaging.

FRESH TRUFFLES

All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper.  This is suitable for storing in your fridge.  If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac.  Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
