Ingredients : 

  • Fresh (not frozen) Tiger Sized Prawns – 10 pieces. Shell removed and de-veined from middle of the prawns. Cleaned in water and kept aside.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Pepper powder – One tbs.
  • Lime juice – Two tsp.
  • Ginger and Garlic paste – One tbs.
  • Red Chilli powder – One tsp.
  • Coriander powder – One tsp.
  • Garam masala powder – just a pinch of it.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil  – Four tbs.  I used extra virgin olive oil, however any normal cooking oil of butter can also be used instead of olive oil.

Method :

First Marinade : 

  • Take the cleaned Tiger Prawns in a deep bowl.
  • Add Salt to taste, Pepper powder and Lime juice into the bowl.  Mix them thoroughly unti all the Prawns are coated with pepper/lime juice/salt.
  • Keep it in the Fridge for 30 minutes.

Second Marinade :

  • Take a small bowl.
  • Add Ginger & Garlic paste, Red Chilli powder, Coriander powder, Garam masala powder, One tsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and mix them well into a paste.
  • Remove the Prawns after 30 minutes from Fridge, and add this second Marinade to the Prawns.  Mix them well until the second Marinade is coated well on all the Prawns.
  • Keep this second Marinde for 15 minutes.

Grilling :

  • Take Bamboo Skewers and wet them in water for 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Pierce the Prawns on each Skewers as shown in the picture above.  Two to Three Prawns in each Skewers is perfect.
  • Take a thick bottom Grill Pan and heat it up.
  • Add remaining Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the hot pan.  Allow the oil to heat up a litter. Turn the heat to medium.
  • Place the Skewers on the hot grill pan.  Grill the Prawns on one side for 2 to 4 minutes (depending on size of the prawns) and turn it over to other side and again grill it for another 2 to 4 minutes.  Prawns doesn’t take much time to cook.  If you feel it needs more time to cook, then please ensure that prawns are not over cooked.

  • Serve hot with Sweet Chilli Sauce.
