Wild Caught, Hand-Peeled Prawns

Prawns for Lunch, Dinner or as an Add-on to Any Meal

At Finn’s Seafood Chops, and Cocktails, our guests rave about our tender, plump wild-caught prawns. The accent piece of any seafood dish worth its salt, our hand-peeled wild prawns are a universal favourite. Get them served alongside a crisp salad, nestled in a bowl of creamy seafood linguini, or as a complement to our juicy NY steak.  Or if you’d rather, prawns can be added to any meal of your choice.

With a light flavour and pleasing texture, prawns are so versatile. Try our wild prawn tacos. A perennial favourite served in both appetizer or main course sizes, with salsa verde, grilled pineapple, chipotle aioli, and soft corn tortillas.finns chopped prawn salad

For lunch or a light meal, a chopped prawn salad will hit the spot. A bowl of goodness with prawns, egg, chopped romaine, bacon, broccoli and blue cheese all under a drizzle of tomato vinaigrette, this lunch will easily get you through the three-o-clock slump. We also offer a Caesar salad with fresh Grana Padano parmesan and herb croutons, with the option of adding wild prawns.

The mussels were delectable, the prawn salad (with warm prawns) divine, and the star of the evening was the halibut over a bed of pesto risotto. Absolutely mouth-watering. OMG! I want more. Wish I had taken photos!

Another great option for lunch or dinner are steam bowls, which are also incredibly popular with visitors and locals alike. The Haida Gwaii Steam Bowl features fresh local mussels and clams, wild prawns, calamari, jasmine rice and fragrant Thai red curry. For those not fond of curry, the Clayoquot Sound Steam Bowl will hit all the marks, with a white wine and garlic base, fresh local mussels and clams, wild prawns, chorizo sausage and steamed jasmine rice.

Our party of three loved our dinner at Finn’s! We tried three dishes—seafood linguini, West Coast Paella, and Haida Gwaii Steam Bowl—and all three were perfectly cooked and very flavourful. Our service by Tuomas was delightful, and the setting overlooking Victoria’s Inner Harbour was unsurpassed—our window-side table overlooked the marina, with the lighted dome of the legislature in the background—magical! Thank you, Finn’s, for a wonderful evening! We’ll be back!- Joan
