These spicy prawns are super quick to braai and make a perfect starter or snack.


1/4 cup olive oil

1-2 red chillies, roughly chopped (remove the seeds if you want it less spicy)

3 garlic cloves, peeled

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon salt

500g prawns, peeled and deveined

Lemon wedges, for serving

Garlic bread, for serving


  1. Combine the oil, honey, soy sauce, lemon, chillies, garlic and salt in a bowl and mix (you can use a blender if you have one).
  2. Place the prawns in a bowl then pour over the marinade. Mix to make sure the prawns are covered then leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
  3. Thread the prawns onto the skewers, pushing the skewer first through the tail and then through the thicker part to ensure they are secure on the skewers. Brush each skewer with marinade. Three prawns per skewer.
  4. Preheat your Megamaster gas braai for 5 minutes to high heat. If using a charcoal braai, also prepare for high heat cooking. Place the skewers on the braai and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until the prawns are caramelised and opaque.
  5. Remove from the braai and serve with lemon wedges and garlic bread.
