A crowd pleasing seafood starter with subtle umami flavours that’s easy to prepare and makes for an amazing snack or side dish.


  • 20 Large-medium sized prawns
  • 5 g Basil (finely chopped)
  • 15 g Parsely (finely chopped)
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 5 Garlic
  • ½ Paprika powder (according to preference)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Crushed black pepper
  • ½ cup Olive oil


  1. Mince the garlic cloves. Mix well in a bowl with all other ingredients except for prawns to create the marinade.
  2. Shell and devein prawns if not already done. Leaving the tail on is ok. Keep about 1/5th of the marinade for later. Place prawns in the main marinade, mix well and allow to rest for 25 minutes.
  3. Set up your grill for areas of both direct and indirect heat. This won’t take long, so bear in mind that you can continue to cook something after if required.
  4. Drive the prawns into the skewers, having five or four on each skewer. Use flat skewers if possible. This can prevent the prawns from rotating on the skewers. Wooden skewers will need to be soaked in water prior to use.
  5. Grill the prawns for 3 minutes on each side over indirect heat. Then just place over direct heat section for 15 seconds. Drizzle remaining marinade on top when plating. Serve with a wedges of lime if desired.
