Prawns are a delicious addition to any BBQ menu. 

I purchase frozen Australian green prawns in the shell at Countdown and Woolworths. Tiger prawns are the best but others are ok. 

1kg of frozen prawns

Two tablespoons of olive oil

Four cloves of grated garlic

Four large red chillies, grated

Grated lemon zest


1. Place frozen prawns into bowl.

2. Make the marinade using the olive oil, garlic, chillies and a little grated lemon zest.

3. Pour over prawns and toss.

4. Leave in fridge overnight to thaw and absorb flavours.

5. Place the prawns on hot BBQ grill or plate for just a minute either side, until bright red.

6. Serve with rice and shallots.
