The Red Prawn, also known as " Alistado", is a crustacean that resembles the Carabinero, Red Prawn in appearance, shape, and size, except that the colour becomes lighter, even with violet or purple tones on the head. They live on the coast of the Gulf of Cadiz, the Portuguese Algarve, and the Mediterranean. They can be found between 1000 and 3300 metres deep.
Gastronomically, many agree that it is the tastiest seafood available, though this is a matter of personal preference. There aren't many places where you can find them, and it's especially difficult due to their scarcity on the coast that surrounds our country. Despite its lack of popularity, it is one of the most sought-after seafood in the Gulf of Cádiz.
