Yeah I know it’s holidays but I reckon it is a midweek cook (as I didn’t have mcuh time nor did I want to spent a lot of time). Anyway we decided to have some shrimp on the barbie, and since we both like prawns, garlic and spicy the choice was easy: Chili and Garlic prawns!!!
I used the following for this cook:
Weber (my trusty gasser)
3 Tbps Olive Oil
5 cloves garlic (we like our garlic)
1/2 tsp chili flakes (we like spciy food and this wasn’t enough!)
pepper and salt to taste
The prawn preparation is simple:
Grab a prawn… twist the head off… use scissors to cut along the back… remove the vein… repeat…
Mix all the ingedients in a bowl and add the praws, marinate for about 2 hours (stir it at intervals).
Fire up the barbie (for about 5 minutes on high) and place the BBQ liner on the hot plate; Place the prawns on the lined hot plate (yeah I do the 1 by 1) an cook for about 2 minutes each side (this all depends on how hot the plate is; how big the prawns are… Important lesson: DO NOT OVERCOOK PRAWNS! It’s easy to do but you really really shouldn’t…
They were jummy with some fresh french bread and a salad (the green stuff) on the side. We happene to have a sauvingon blanc chilled so that went nicely with it…
Aaaaah……….. Australian summers are great!!!
