  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 18 large prawns in their shells (with the heads on if possible)
  • mint relish


  • Mix the oil with the garlic, chilli, salt and paprika, then toss in the prawns. Marinate the prawns in the fridge for up to 1 day.
  • TO BARBECUE: Cook the prawns singly or thread 3 onto skewers to make portions. Barbecue for just a few mins each side until they turn from grey to pink. Serve with the mint relish (just tiny pots per portion), warm finger bowls with lime slices, napkins, and a bowl for the shells.
