Chargrilled Garlic & Pepper Prawns

18 Jan

I was having lunch with a group of friends at a Specialty Grill & Salad Café. And boy, was I impressed with the salad bar! Apart from the greens, the salad was accompanied by tantalizing premium grills with unique and wacky dressings.

Green Salad with Chargrilled Garlic & Pepper Prawns

I was so inspired by my lunch that I decided to try out the Chargrilled Garlic & Pepper Prawns and add that to the weekend menu with the family. I have successfully infused these grilled prawns in a salad (Duh!) and also in my Korean food fiesta. Needless to say, it was a hit 😉


  • 20 – 30 medium grey prawns, deveined
  • 2 coriander stalks, cleaned and remove the roots
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole white peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce


Pound the white peppercorns (or you can always use ground white pepper), coriander stalks and garlic to paste.

Dissolve sugar in the fish sauce and stir that into the paste.

Add prawns, toss and marinate for 2 hours minimum. Cook prawns for a minute each side on the BBQ (or griddle).
