Title: African Grilled Prawns



Cook time: 6 mins

Total time: 6 mins

Serves: 4

Quick easy grilled prawns bursting wth flavour and perfect for brunch and lazy family gatherings.


  • 500g tiger prawns with shells on
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp maggi cube crumbled*
  • ⅛ tsp chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp ground white pepper
  • ½ tsp powdered ginger
  • Salt
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil

Mix all the ingredients including the oil together and let marinate for at least 30 mins. Cook the prawns for about 2-3 minutes on each side on your barbecue - until they are cooked through. Serve the prawns straight away, or they are very good cold for picnics. These grilled prawns pair well with some chilled Alexandre Merlin champagne from Waitrose.

*Maggi is a stock cube used in Africa and found in African shops or online. If you don't have it you could add in some extra coriander or a similar stock cube. You can easily add more chilli if your palate takes it.
