Garlic chilli prawns

Garlic chilli prawns is one of my favourite dishes; I enjoy it at least once a week as it’s bursting with flavour.  And best of all you can have this delicious dish on your table in minutes.

180g raw jumbo king prawns

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

½ teaspoon paprika

2 cloves of garlic

Handful of fresh parsley

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Crushed chilli flakes to taste (optional)


  • In a bowl stir together the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, paprika and black pepper. Season with crushed chillies for extra heat.
  • Add prawns to the bowl, and toss to coat evenly.
  • Marinate in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat a griddle pan.
  • Thread the marinated prawns onto skewers (soak wooden skewers in warm water for 20 minutes beforehand), piercing once near the tail and once near the head.
  • Discard any remaining marinade.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
