SKU: G01 Categories: , ,


Botan Ebi is known for its sweet flavors. It is approximately 3 times larger than the more common Ama Ebi. Botan-Ebi season is November to March.

Because of its larger size, the Botan Ebi is easier to peel and extremely sweet. Furthermore, the large Botan Ebi’s head is perfect for decorative garnishes.
