Chili Prawn Skewers

Recipe Description

Try to get the freshest prawns you can get for this recipe. If you buy whole prawns, you'll need to remove the heads and shells, leaving the tail section intact. Serve with extra lime wedges. This is a really great and fast dish to serve at a barbecue as part of a "surf and turf" meal.


  • 16 giant raw prawns, shelled with the tail section left intact
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 tbsp. sweet chili sauce (can be found in the aisle that holds the Asian seasonings and foods)


  1. Place eight bamboo skewers in cold water and leave to soak for at least 10 minutes, then preheat the broiler to high. You can also stoke up a hot grill.
  2. Thread a prawn onto each skewer, then a lime wedge, then another prawn. Brush the sweet chili sauce over the prawns and lime wedges.
  3. Arrange the skewers on a baking sheet and broil for about 2 minutes, turning them once, until cooked through. Serve immediately with more chili sauce for dipping.
