Rose Garden Seafood Restaurant – Spot Prawns 2013

Just like King Crab season, the Spot Prawn season is relatively short but well worth the wait every year.  In the past, we used to go down to Fisherman’s Wharf and stand in line to get our fix for spot prawns.  While the price was good, we soon found out that it was just easier to go to Rose Garden and have it made for us.  The price was comparable to what you would pay to buy them yourself and it’s all cooked for you.

Back in May (at the start of the season), the price for spot prawns was about $18/lb (which was a little expensive compared with what we paid last year).  A week into Spot Prawn season this year and the price was down to $16.80/lb when we visited Rose Garden.  As it turns out, they still had King Crab available for about $20/lb too.

We ordered 2 lbs of these tasty crustaceans that was simply prepared by steaming and served with a soy sauce-based dipping sauce.  You have to be a little careful ripping the heads and shells off because the liquids can squirt out of the head and the shells are a bit sharp.

To finish off our meal, we also picked up an order of the Assorted Meat Hot Pot and Gai Lan sautéed with Garlic.  The hot pot is the perfect dish if you like something saucy to go with your rice.
