How To Grill Whole Prawns

Prawns should always be grilled hot and fast because they cook quickly. Here are some of my tips...

  • Buy the freshest prawns possible.
  • Grilling whole prawns in their shell will keep them more juicy and they are less likely to dry out.
  • Brush whole prawns with oil.
  • Grill prawns for 8 minutes, turning halfway.
  • Once they come off the grill, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

NB: Hot and fast grilling means cooking over direct heat, quickly.

If you are using a gas grill, set it to medium/high.

If you are using charcoal, cook close to your charcoal.
