Red Prawn is a variety of durian most closely linked to Penang Island in Malaysia, and when grown away from its native climate the characteristics of the fruit change, losing the distinctive brownish-lavender colour of its outer shell.
Durian Kaya – Red Prawn
Special Limited Edition: If out of stock, don’t worry! It’ll be back at some point – follow me on Instagram where I always announce when they are next expected to be back. Currently expected back in Summer 2022!
Durian is known as the “King of Fruits” in Malaysia. Incredibly divisive, you’ll either love it or hate it. Its thorny exterior protects rich, creamy flesh with a bittersweet flavour that pairs beautifully with the silky texture and coconut notes of my kaya that balance out the durian’s notorious pungency.
The flavour of a red prawn durian is sweet and creamy, and it has a less fibrous texture than many other varieties. It is named after the way its flesh is arranged in the fruit – curled up and slightly pinkish-grey, like a cooked prawn.
Please note that as my durian kaya is made with whole durian flesh rather than machine-processed puree, you may find some durian fibres in the finished product. This is part of its expected characteristics.
