Grilled Spicy Prawns

I had wanted to cook Laska but realised that I have forgotten to get a couple of ingredients. -_-" I'm glad I didn't make Laska anyway as my husband had to work late. I won't be able to finish all of it myself.

I decided to grilled the prawns instead. I just need to blanch some veggies, a bowl of soup and rice and my dinner is settled. And the good thing is I can repeat the same thing for my husband when he returns home as it's so easy and fast to prepare. No cold and leftover dinner. :)

Oh, my kids don't eat this. They eat much earlier and they have their own dinner menu. ;)

  • 10 Medium to Large Prawns, shelled and devien
  • 1 tablespoon Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • Zest of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Chopped Basil
  • Olive Oil for brushing
  • A dash of pepper
  • A pinch of salt

How to do it:
  1. Combine all ingredients together.
  2. Marinate prawns for 15 minutes.
  3. Pierce a wooden skewer or in my case, a stalk of lemongrass through 3 prawns.
  4. Brush oil on the grill pan.
  5. Grill the prawns for 2 minutes on each side or till cooked.
  6. Remove and serve immediately.

The grilling time depends on the size of the prawns. Don't over cook the prawns as the prawns will become dry and hard.
