Spot Prawn Season

By May 8, 2012

Follow me on:

The BC Spot Prawn Festival was a busy, one-day-only event on Sat. May 5. But it wasn't so much about the one-day festival as the reason for the season: the opening of the spot prawn fisheries.Spot Prawn Festival

Now through late June you can head down to the False Creek's Fisherman's Wharf near Granville Island to buy prawns directly from fishing boats. Or, you can sample the delicate, well-loved crustacean at a Vancouver restaurant.

Spot prawns are a favorite ingredient in Pacific Northwest cuisine. Eateries like C Restaurant, Yew at the Four Seasons, and Tojo's all have special spot prawn dishes on their menus during the spring fishing season.

For a quick seafood lunch throughout the year, Go Fish is located directly across from the fishing boat wharf.
