How to Make Spicy coconut prawns

  • Place the prawns in a shallow dish.
  • Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Pour the marinade over the prawns ensuring the prawns are well coated with the marinade. Marinate for 30 mins. at room temperature or 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Drain the prawns and reserve the marinade.
  • Thread 3-4 prawns on a wooden skewer. Thread so as to pierce each prawn twice. Barbeque over medium hot coals, until the prawns are pink.
  • Combine the reserved marinade with the coconut milk in a pan and heat over the barbeque for 5-6 mins, until the sauce thickens.
  • Place the prawns on a bed of boiled noodles.
  • Pour some hot sauce over the prawns and serve.
