Recipe: Skewered Sweet and Sour BBQ Prawns

Quick Overview

This is a good way to serve whole fresh prawns. Skewer the whole prawn from tail to head, coat in sauce and cook quickly. Serve with fresh lime which will also help to clean sticky fingers.

Serves 2

Soak the wooden skewers in water for approximately 20 minutes before use.

Place prawns in a large bowl and coat with sweet and sour sauce.

Thread the skewer through the length of the prawn from tail to head.

Cook quickly over the barbecue, basting with more sweet and sour sauce during the cooking process.

Alternatively, cook the prawns under a hot grill.
