You will need
  • 16-20 large black tiger prawns
  • Chilli and Garlic Seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lime or lemon
  • Sweet Chilli dipping sauce

If frozen, leave the prawns in a sink half filled with cold tap water until beginning to thaw. Remove the heads. Cut through the hard shell, along the backs, with a pair of kitchen scissors and then slice each prawn almost completely through the flesh, with a sharp knife, to butterfly them open. Remove the black vein and rinse in clean water.

Season each prawn on both sides with Chilli & Garlic Seasoning and brush generously with olive oil. Leave covered in the fridge with an ice brick on top until ready to cook.

Prepare a hot griddle pan or braai fire and cook the prawns, meaty side down, until well marked. Turn over and cook on the shell side for 2 minutes. Squeeze lime or lemon juice over and serve with Sweet Chilli Chutney as a dipping sauce.
