1/3 cup olive oil

2 tbsp bottled hot sauce

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 clove garlic (minced)

1 pound raw prawns (peeled and deveined)

Wooden skewers


  1. Place the wooden skewers in a container and fill with water. Let them soak for 30 minutes so the skewers don’t shed while you’re eating.
  2. Prepare the marinade in a small bowl by whisking together the olive oil, hot sauce, smoked paprika, and garlic.
  3. Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel, then cover completely with the sauce. Place in the fridge to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Pierce the shrimp through the head and tail, and prepare the grill with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, and serve right away.
