Chili prawns
Here they are on the BBQ next to some damn good pork bellies too.

A lovely BBQ was held on Saturday down at the pool with our neighbours – The Rutherfords. Pia knocks one out of the park with her chili prawn recipe – BOOM!!! So yep I am nicking it for the Is Life a Recipe blog. Nicely done Pia, these were absolute crackers, loved them!!!

You will need a few bamboo skewers, and of course as we’re BBQ’ing get your zip lock bags out. Open em up and throw on in;

  • 15 shelled prawns, but leave on the tails;
  • 1.5 teaspoons of olive oil;
  • 3 finely chopped chili padis;
  • 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic;
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika;
  • Juice and zest of half a lemon;
  • 1 handful of chopped coriander; and
  • A good pinch of salt and cracked black pepper.

Now that is all in the bag give the prawns a good rub around to coat that lovely marinade all over. Leave in the bag in the fridge for a couple of hours to let those flavour soak in nicely.

When you’re ready get the coals nice and hot. Whilst that’s heating up get three or so prawns on to a skewer and repeat. Bash the chili prawns on the BBQ and frill until pink and charred, then flip em over and repeat the process. Should be about 5 minutes in total.

Hand the chili prawns out – great finger food as on the skewers allowing your other hand to have this foods soulmate in it – yep a cold cold beer. Completely delicious.

So thanks to Pia for this one – it is an absolute cracker. Everyone Loved it.
