Indian Spiced Prawn Skewers
The best thing about this prawn dish is that you can sizzle the juicy prawns over a smoky BBQ in the Summer and in the winter you can simply grill them indoors instead. I just can’t seem to get enough of them and neither can everyone else. I guess the thing with prawns is if you like them, you can pretty much eat them with any marinade. I favour indian and asian flavours but I am more then happy to have them with most marinades. Although sickly sweet doesn’t work for me! I know so many people who love prawns with a really rich, sticky sweet sauce but although I can eat it, I would usually go for a marinade that is a little more subtle in flavour when it comes to prawns.
For the most part I always buy frozen prawns. I know a lot of people buy fresh prawns but I rarely do, mainly because I cannot cope with the smell in fish shops and markets. My freezer is always stocked with prawns because we love them yet I don’t think I have ever shared a prawn recipe on the blog. I haves shared this one on Nutri Ninja though.
Grilling is one of my favourite ways to cook prawns as it is a surefire way to end up with a tasty prawn dish. These prawns are great with rice or in a naan with plenty of dressing.
