BBQ Shrimp (Prawns)

Aussie’s love a BBQ and throwing some ‘shrimp on the Barbie’ is a line you’ve probably heard many times. This dish is quick and simple, with the flavour coming from the smokey BBQ and delicious prawn meat. Don’t worry if you don’t have a BBQ, a grill or griddle pan will do the trick. Serve these with a simple dipping sauce like an aioli or spicy mayo and a wedge of lemon, or put them onto skewers with tomatoes and veg in the middle.


Ingredients: Serving size: 1 portion

  • 5-6 x king prawns – shell on / head on 
  • Dipping sauce: Spicy mayo / garlic aioli
  • Salt and pepper / oil


  1. Clean you prawns removing the shell if you wish (our preference is to leave it on or at least the head for flavour)
  2. Heat up your griddle or grill and then place the prawns on, cooking on each side for 1-2 minutes until pink and juicy
  3. Serve hot with a dipping sauce and wedge of lime
