Seafood Recipes

Seafood can be cooked on a barbecue. A little extra care is required but worth the effort.

Garlic prawns

Garlic and chilli oil prawns


  • Raw prawns as required
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 a small red cilli, with seeds removed
  • Lemon juice
  • Sunflower oil

Cooking Method

  • Set up the barbecue for grilling. Soak some wooden skewer in water for an hour
  • Chop the garlic and chilli. Mix together with some lemon juice and a little oil
  • Add the prawns to marinate for 5 minutes. The lemon juice will begin to cook the prawns
  • Skewer the prawns taking care not to pack them too tightly
  • Once the barbecue is hot place the prawn skewers on to the grill. Put the handle of the skewer where there is no heat
  • Turn the prawns after a couple of minutes
  • Another couple of minutes turn the prawns again
  • Following a further couple of minutes turn the prawns again
  • A couple of minutes later turn the prawns one last time. The prawns are cooked when they are pink
  • Serve immediately
