Spicy Grilled Shrimp Kabobs

This recipe is based on Mark Bittman's "Famous Spicy Shrimp". It's quick and easy. Even better than quick and easy, it's delicious. I used prawns, not shrimp - which in Canada are the bigger version of little shrimps.

1 lb prawns
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cayenne

What to do
  • Using a mortar and pestle or a small food processor, make a paste of paprika, oil, cayenne, oil, lemon juice, and pinch of salt.
  • Rub the paste over the prawns.
  • Using wooden skewers that have been soaked for about 1/2 hour in water, spear 3-4 prawns per skewer.
  • Grill for 2 minutes per side over medium heat.
  • Enjoy!
Delicious with orzo risotto...recipe to come this week.
