This recipe uses large prawns so if you can get your hands on some then it will work perfectly. You can make these prawns on a Braai or a griddle pan on the stove.
What You'll Need - Serves 2
4 Garlic Cloves
1/4 Cup Cooking Oil
Dry Chili Flakes
Salt & Pepper
Prep - 20 Minutes
I'd suggest getting your prawns cleaned for you. Most shops and fisheries do it for free. They'll clean them and slit them down the back of the prawn.
Finely mince the garlic using a garlic press or pestle or mortar
Add the chili flakes, lemon juice and cooking oil to the garlic and combine.
Season the marinade with salt and pepper
Coat the prawns in the marinade making sure you apply the sauce to the flesh of the prawns.
Allow to marinade for at least 15 minutes
Let's Get Cooking - 10 Minutes
If you're using a braai stand or the griddle pan, make sure they are extremely hot. If they aren't hot enough, the prawns might overcook
Place them on the braai/ pan by opening up the prawn to show the exposed flesh and laying it flat.
Cook for 5 minutes with the flesh down. As the prawns are cooking brush them with the remainder of the marinade.
Turn the prawns on their side and allow the shell to grill and crisp up for another 2 minutes each side.
Once cooked, drizzle lemon juice on the prawns and serve
