Perfect barbecue prawns

Chuck another shrimp on the barbie, mate.

Doesn’t get more quintessentially Aussie than chucking a shrimp on the barbie. Prawns cook quickly and stay succulent and best to serve with a squeeze of lemon.

Perfect for Christmas starters or your next summer get-together.

1.If using medium prawns, shell and devein prawns leaving tails intact. If using large prawns, butterfly by cutting through the body, just after the head, stopping just before the tail; remove the vein.
2.Toss peeled prawns with oil, or brush butterflied prawns with oil, season.
3.Heat a chargrill pan or barbecue to high; cook peeled prawns, in batches, for 1 minutes each side or until cooked through; the flesh will change from translucent to opaque. Cook butterflied prawns in the same manner, flesh-side down first.
4.Serve with lemon cheeks.
