INGREDIENTS FOR MARINADE:
1 1/2 lb Black Tiger Prawns (peeled & deveined)
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic (finely minced)
2 teaspoons red chili powder
salt & pepper to taste
1 pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
1/2 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
juice of 1/2 of a fresh lime
Keep on hand:
Wooden skewers (soaked in water for 1/2 hour)
Fresh chopped parsley
Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl, add the prawns, stir and set aside for about half an hour.
Soak around 15-20 wooden skewers in warm water for half an hour (so that they do not burn when you grill)
melt a little butter in a pan and add fresh finely chopped parsley to it. and set aside.
Skewer 3-4 prawns on each stick depending on how long your skewers are.
You can either grill these prawns on the BBQ or on a cast iron grill. either way the taste is amazing.
Grill on high medium high heat for 3 minutes on each side. (be sure to oil your grill before hand)
Brush a little of the butter and parsley mixture on the prawns before serving for a beautiful sheen.
This dish is so versatile. The prawns are amazing on a salad, with rice, on pasta... in tacos...I could go on and on.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
