These Chinese inspired sweet and sour prawns are sensational on the barbecue!
  • If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes. In a large bowl combine all the marinade ingredients and the prepared prawns. Refrigerate for an hour to marinate.
  • Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over high heat (230°C to 290°C). Remove the prawns from the marinade and thread three prawns onto each skewer. Combine all the baste ingredients and apply to the prawns with a basting brush just before grilling.
  • Grill the prawns over direct high heat, with the lid closed, for 4 minutes, flipping once halfway through the cooking time, or until the prawns have cooked through.
