Succulent Exotic Bbq-Ed Prawns
"I just made these again last weekend as the weather was BBQ perfect. Summer is here! Oh, how exciting! I just love those exotic marinades so much that I cannot think of not making them, especially when BBQ weather comes in full glory. These prawns are really the simplest thing ever to make and they taste just divine. I love to share this recipe with you because those prawns are so refreshing. Those can also be beautifully cooked on a griddle pan or in the oven if you don’t have a barbecue handy or don’t really feel like getting the barbecue going or, of course, if the weather is not best for one big fat BBQ."
NotesThese prawns go really well with grilled vegetables such as cute baby zucchinis, mushrooms, pepper, red onions.
So, some vegetable skewers along those will go amazingly well or simply a refreshing salad...
Preparation Time10 min
Cooking Time10 min
- 32 medium prawns
- 4-5 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp fish sauce
- 2 cloves garlic (grated)
- 2 springs coriander fresh, chopped
- 1 spring onion (finely chopped)
- 1 lemon (juice)
- 1 lime (juice)
- 2 tsp honey or brown sugar
- 1 tbsp ginger (grated)
Clean and wash the prawns and place in a plastic zip-bag.
Mix all the ingredients for the marinade and pour over on the prawns.
Zip the bag and place in the fridge remembering every now and again to toss the prawns around. You can prepare this 2 to 3 hours in advance but make sure they spend at least one hour in this marinade for best results.
Prepare the barbecue and when ready, barbecue them (depending on how strong heat is) for about 2-4 min on each side.
Eat them on Thai steamed rice or soba noodles with a beautiful exotic salads.
