BBQ Prawns

This is the way prawns are meant to be bbq-ed!!! Try out my quick & easy take on one of the best BBQ starters for any party.. Serve it with drinks & some BBQ sauce, hot sauce or any sauce of your liking – It will be a hit at your party!



PrepTime 20mins – Serves 6 – CookTime 10mins



18-20 jumbo prawns – cleaned & deveined ( I leave the tail on)
2 cups mixed colored bellpeppers & onions- cut into 1″ pieces
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp djon mustard
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp coriander pwd
2 tsp jeera/ cumin
1 tbsp corn flour
1/4 cup any BBQ sauce
1 package wooden skewers
3 tbsp dark low-sodium soy sauce (optional)
4 tbsp fish sauce or oyster sauce (optional)
2 tbsp white wine (optional)

Cooking Instructions
Soak the wooden skewers in water to prevent them from burning while bbq-ing or broiling.
Marinade all the ingredients together & set aside for 20 mins.
Skewer the prawns with pieces of bell-peppers & onions in between, leaving enough end-space to flip-over.
Grill on a bbq or broil in your oven for 3-4 mins each side, until white (no longer pink & translucent). Char a bit & then braise with butter on each side. Don’t over-cook them, else they will get rubbery & hard.
Serve with some tartar sauce, bbq sauce or any sauce of your choice.
