Summer is a lovely time to spend outdoors, having a barbecue, grill meat and veggies, enjoying weather..with some exception for Dubai, it’s terribly hot; the barbecue standing lonely, and waiting for the chilly days to be dust off.. If you are lucky and enjoying weather, I recommend to try this one of the most flavorful grilled prawns recipe I have tried (or grill it in the oven). The recipe is on my list of easy and impressive dishes!
I’d like to invite all bloggers who’s parting @FF to try these scrumptious prawns! I’ve got a couple of bottles of white wine.. 😉 I’m sure today evening will be a hit!
Grilled Tiger Prawns
2-3 prawns per person are enough for an appetizer, but for the main course increase the quantity as many as desired.
Can be served with a glass of good wine and pineapple salsa.
12 tiger prawns
1 shallot or small red onion
3 garlic gloves
1 small red chilli, optional
1 Tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
½ lemon, juice
sea salt, black pepper to taste
2 Tbsp coriander, finely chopped
2 Tbsp lemon juice
- Cut prawns in the middle and clean. You can cut off heads or leave it. Arrange them in a big shallow dish.
- Finely chop shallot, garlic and chilli. Sprinkle it over prawns along with coriander, add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the dish and let it marinate in the fridge for 1-3 hours or overnight.
- Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling. Grill for 5-7 minutes.
