Sweet Chilli Prawns

Sweet Chilli Prawns


  • 36 raw king prawns
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp Heinz Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • Finely grated zest and juice of half a lime
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 6 large/12 small bamboo skewers, pre-soaked in cold water for at least 20 mins or fine metal skewers


  1. Peel the prawns leaving the last tail section in place. Devein by making a shallow cut along the curved back of each one and lift out the dark vein.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a large non-metallic bowl. Stir the prawns into the mixture, cover with clingfilm and leave them to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (ideally a couple hours).
  3. Thread prawns onto each pre-soaked skewer.
  4. Barbecue the prawns over medium hot coals for 3-4 minutes, turning them occasionally, until they have become firm and opaque.
  5. Serve with salad or rice and extra Heinz Chilli Sauce on the side.
