Serves 6

2 lbs Prawns (peeled and deveined)
3 cloves Garlic (minced)
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Tomato sauce
2 Tbsp Red Wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Fresh Basil (chopped)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
Wooden or Metal Skewers for grilling

  • If you are planning to use wooden skewers, I would suggest soaking them for several hours or overnight before hand.
  • Start by making the marinade. In a bowl, mix together the garlic, tomato sauce, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, cayenne and basil. Add the prawns to the bowl and mix well.
  • Cover and marinate in the fridge for 30 mins to 1 hour.
  • Preheat greased outdoor grill to medium heat.
  • Remove prawns from marinade. Discard any excess marinade!
  • Thread 5-6 prawns per skewer, and grill the prawns 2-3 mins per side.
