Griddled prawns

Everyone has to have a few recipes up their sleeve that looks super impressive but takes less than 5 minutes to cook. This is one of those recipes. It can be easily scaled up depending on the number of people, and works as a simple starter or as a light meal.

Griddling is a wonderful cooking technique in that is adds a wonderful charred flavour to any food and you don’t need much oil to cook in a griddle pan. This recipe can be done with prawns that have already been shelled if picking away prawn shells doesn’t sound too appealing.

To make this you will need:

Your desired number of raw prawns

Fry light or similar

1 large clove of garlic

A chilli

A griddle pan

Half a lemon


Put your griddle pan on a high heat. Spritz with your oil or fry light. Crush over your garlic clove and slice over the chilli and heat until both are fragrant.
