Only in a setting as natural as Palamós can there exist a product such as Palamós Prawns (Gambas de Palamós), found in the secret depths of the Mediterranean.
Their reddish body, their firm texture, their freshness and their incomparably exquisite flavour, make Palamós Prawns a unique, intimate and inexplicable pleasure. Order them by their name – “Palamós Prawns”.
The incomparable quality of Palamós Prawns also applies to the finest varieties of fresh fish that are brought in to the fish market every afternoon. The very best place to sample the fish is at one of the extensive list of restaurants in Palamós. The pleasure of enjoying the best products of the Mediterranean is brought to diners’ tables via the expert hands of the Costa Brava’s finest chefs.
Nobody knows more about – or cares more about – Palamós Prawns than the members of the Confraria de Pescadors de Palamós (Palamós Fishermen’s Guild). Their long maritime tradition gives them a certain legitimacy in the art of fishing, as is often the case when a profession is handed down from generation to generation.
That is why the “Gamba de Palamós Marca de Garantia” (Palamós Prawns Guarantee) is a recognition of their daily work and skill in making sure the prawns continue to be of the highest quality.
The “Gamba de Palamós” Guarantee Stamp
The stamp guarantees that the prawns that reach customers maintain the same high level of quality: an excellent taste, an unmistakable aroma, an attractive appearance and an unbeatable freshness. The high quality is achieved by applying strict rules in the fishing process and in how the prawns are handled throughout the distribution chain, as well as a thorough control of temperature (of between 0º and 4ºC) from when the prawns leave the sea to when they reach the final consumer. The whole process is controlled by the guarantee stamp certification committee.
