Thai BBQ Prawns


This is a quick and easy recipe for Thai BBQ prawns. All you need is some metal skewers and sunshine, and then you're ready to throw some shrimp on the barbie!!!


Although sunshine is preferred, it is rarely guaranteed, so this recipe is just as good cooked on a griddle pan.

Makes 2 skewers

Ingredients

  • 8 Crevettes (prawns, uncooked, unshelled)
  • 2 metal skewers
  • Thai marinade
Marinade

  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely diced
  • 1/2 a red chilli, finely diced
  • 1 stick of lemongrass, peeled and finely diced
  • 3 tbsp of diced fresh coriander
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp of oil


Method

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together.
  2. Add the prawns to the marinade and leave for 3 minutes.
  3. Place 4 prawns on each metal skewer (starting with the 'neck' and push the skewer out again at the 'tail')
  4. Either place the skewers on a hot BBQ or Griddle pan and cook for 2 minutes and turn them and cook for a further minute.
Deshelling prawns can be quite messy so be prepared to get your fingers messy, though after you can lick them clean!!! Have a small bowl of lemon water and napkins handy to de-prawn.
