BBQ prawns are a summer must have. When you cook prawns in the shell, not only do they stay moist and have more flavour, but they have great colour and make for an eye catching spread. Grilling these BBQ prawns is simple, just chuck the prawns on the barbie then serve with this punchy sauce and easy, homemade flatbreads. If you don't like too much spice, simply reduce the number of chillies in the sauce. The thought of making your own bread can be daunting, but these flatbreads are so quick and easy to make, and your friends and family will be impressed that you have made your own.
This recipe is great for sharing as everyone can grab a portion without any need for you to serve them.
Prawns are a really healthy choice for your barbecue protein too. They are a low fat and low calorie source of protein that also provide Selenium and Zinc, which can help heart health and boost your immune system. Chillies are a surprisingly great source of vitamin C, and also help keep your sinuses clear and aid digestion.
This recipe for BBQ prawns is inspired by Asian spices and will give a vibrant and fragrant twist to your usual barbecue fare. The flatbreads are also incredibly versatile and are great to serve alongside curries or as part of a sharing board with dips if you have any leftovers. This is a deceptively simple recipe that gives fantastic results, give it a try the next time the sun is shining and the barbecue comes out.
