Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the oil with the garlic, chilli, salt and paprika, then toss in the prawns. Marinate the prawns in the fridge for up to 1 day.

  • STEP 2

    TO BARBECUE: Cook the prawns singly or thread 3 onto skewers to make portions. Barbecue for just a few mins each side until they turn from grey to pink. Serve with the mint relish (just tiny pots per portion), warm finger bowls with lime slices, napkins, and a bowl for the shells.

RECIPE TIPS
SARA SAYS...

Cooking prawns in their shells makes all the difference to their flavour, but shelling them is messy – so provide finger bowls, too.
