Ingredients for Barbecued Prawns Spanish Style

2 kilos fresh prawns (the frozen ones are fine as long as they are not pre cooked and buy the biggest ones you can!)

How to make Barbecued Prawns Spanish Style

The trick with this dish is creating the perfect "brasa" or hot bbq coals.

  • Light the barbecue early so that when it is time to cook you have a good layer of red hot coals with no flame.
  • Wash the prawns in cold running water, if you have bought frozen allow an hour or two beforehand to thaw out.
  • Place the prawns on the barbecue grill and cook for about six minutes each side until cooked through but still tender.
  • Serve and enjoy!

A great way to eat this dish is with fresh bread and a Mediterranean style salad full of olives, white asparagus, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, sweet corn and artichoke hearts.
