  • 500 g tiger prawns with shells on
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp maggi cube crumbled*
  • 1/8 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • Salt
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil


  • Mix all the ingredients including the oil together and let marinate for at least 30 mins.
  • Cook the prawns for about 2-3 minutes on each side on your barbecue - until they are cooked through.
  • Serve the prawns straight away, or they are very good cold for picnics.
  • These grilled prawns pair well with some chilled Alexandre Merlin Champagne from Waitrose.


*Maggi is a stock cube used in Africa and found in African shops or online. If you don't have it you could add in some extra coriander or a similar stock cube. You can easily add more chilli if your palate takes it.
