  Largest prawn cocktail-world record set by SAGB   

  LONDON, UK  -- The Shellfish Association of Great Britain (SAGB), in association with Royal Greenland, has created a prawn cocktail consisting of 50 kilograms of prawns in a 1.5-meter-tall champagne glass-setting the world record for the Largest prawn cocktail.

  The world's Largest prawn cocktail was used as the centerpiece of a buffet for 350 guests at Fishmonger’s Hall who attended the Doggett’s Day Coat & Badge Race, the world’s oldest rowing race, which takes place annually on the Thames River in London.
   Royal Greenland supplied the prawns used for the cocktail.

   The World's largest prawn cocktail was part of an on-going campaign by the SAGB to raise awareness of the health benefits of eating seafood.

  The shellfish association say that contrary to the ‘old wives tale' that certain shellfish particularly prawns raise cholesterol, recent research funded by the shellfish industry has revealed it is the amount of saturated fat in the diet that has a greater effect in raising blood cholesterol rather than the amount of cholesterol in the diet.

   The association also underline that shellfish are excellent sources of protein; a 100g serving of shellfish provides about 10-25g of protein, roughly a third to half of the average UK recommended protein intake.

    The protein in shellfish is of high quality, containing many essential amino acids and, because of a lack of connective tissue, very digestible for people of all ages. Shellfish are also generally lower in fat, less than 5%, and accordingly contain fewer calories than beef, poultry or pork.

   For example, a 100g portion of prawns (a typical prawn cocktail amount) contains only 0.2g of saturated fat and 76 calories, whilst 100g of beef mince contains 6.9g and 225 calories.
