Asian Style Prawns on Skewers



4 portion(s)

  • 30 skewers, (approximately)
  • 1kg raw uncooked prawns
  • 3 sprigs fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried ground coriander seeds
  • 20 grams fish sauce
  • 1 long red chilli
  • 1 spring onion
  • 70 grams olive oil spray
  • 2 Limes

Recipe's preparation

  1. Submerge skewers into water and leave overnight to soak. Once soaked, remove the skewers from the water and set aside ready to use.

  2. Place prawns into a large bowl or container ready to be marinated. Set aside.

  3. Peel and put into the TM bowl the rind of one lime. Squeeze the juice of the same lime and also add it into the TM bowl.

  4. Add spring onion, chilli, coriander leaves and garlic cloves into the TM bowl and chop 10 sec / speed 8. (Scrape down the sides of the bowl and chop a further 10 sec / speed 8 to cut the above-mentioned finer if desired.)

  5. Scrape down sides of the bowl again and add oil, fish sauce, ground coriander and mix 5 sec / speed 3.

  6. Pour marinade on top of the prawns and toss until well combined. Cover and refrigerate marinated prawns for at least two hours but preferably overnight.

  7. Once marinated, thread prawns onto the skewers and in doing so remove, if any, chunky marinade ingredients (e.g. ungrated rind, unchopped coriander leaves).

  8. Preheat a barbecue hot plate over high heat and grease by spraying extra virgin olive oil. Add prawns and cook for 5 minutes or until crisp and cooked through.

  9. Once cooked, transfer prawns onto a platter.  Top with coriander and lime wedges.
