Spicy Lime Grilled Prawns

Yummy prawns and vinaigrette! A lot of work but worth it! ;-)


  • 12 large tiger prawns, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • Ad
  • 1 green chili pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil if needed for blending
  • Skewers


Place the prawns and lime zest in a large glass or plastic bowl.

Place the lime juice, chili pepper, garlic, ginger, and onion in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. You may need to add a little oil to assist in blending. Pour over the bowl of prawns, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

Preheat grill at medium high. Thread prawns onto skewers by piercing each first through the tail and then the head.

Brush grill grate with oil. Cook prawns for 5 minutes, turning once, or until opaque.

Serve with the Peanut Lime Vinaigrette:

I was born and reared in Florida, so good seafood is

like orange juice to me. I think I have to have it.

This recipe, I will definitely make. My poor hubby

can no longer have shellfish, and I feel so sorry for

him. He enjoys good shrimp as much as I do. I'll

just have to choose a time when he's gone bowling

or something with the guys...but I'm definitely going

to do this recipe. Just reading it makes me hungry.

Thank you for sharing it Deelil.
