Uni. Cracked open while wiggling. Hard to top.
I want to eat it off a boat now.

^ ditto, super fresh and literally feels like it's not even the same food as the pre-packages. I personally did not like uni, but once I tried a live one right out of the shell I fell in love!

It's usually available, just not in abundance so it's freakin' expensive compared to when in season.

Really? I heard 12 and that was even at granville island? Regardless, getting reasonably priced seafood in this city is a fucking joke.

There's a few places that have gotten them since last week or so, but expensive at like $18.99/lb.

This weekend is the annual Spot Prawn festival which kind of kicks off the entire season.

I remember someone saying how TnT Spot Prawns were mostly caught in the US, anyone can confirm this? Either way that's not a bad price, I usually go down to Steveston Landing and buy them from the boats ... can't wait

Bc spot prawns don't open till tmr so whatever your buying now is American, and ocean run seafood supplies Tnt. They have boats in Washington, and Oregon as well.

How are the prawns this year? It wasn't that great last year.

(jealous of you guys in Vancouver....I'm living in London now and so far removed from Vancouver's good food)

What is the difference in terms of taste between spot prawns and normal prawns?
