the Ingredients

Prawn Satay With Dipping Sauce
  • 20 large green prawns (about 450 g), peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon tabasco sauce (or more, to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


  • 01 In a small saucepan over medium-high heat on the stove top, warm the oil, and then add the garlic and ginger; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add ½ cup water, followed by the peanut butter, soy sauce, pepper, and hot sauce. Whisk until smooth. When the sauce comes to a simmer, remove it from the heat. Just before serving, reheat the sauce over medium heat and add the lime juice and 2 to 3 tablespoons of water, whisking vigorously to achieve a smooth consistency.
  • 02 Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over high heat (250°C to 290°C).
  • 03 Lightly brush or spray the prawns with oil. Season with the chilli powder, curry powder, salt, and pepper. Thread the prawns onto skewers, either 1 per skewer for hors d’oeuvres or 4 per skewer for a main course.
  • 04 Brush the cooking grill clean. Grill the prawns over direct high heat, with the lid closed, for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until opaque. Remove from the grill and serve with the peanut dipping sauce.
