Sizzling Skewers 3 Ways | BBQ Meal Prep

These sizzling skewers will raise your BBQ game and then some.


It’s time to treat yourself to something a little more exciting than another batch of hotdogs. The weather doesn’t always play ball with BBQ plans, so when you do get the chance to fire up the coals, you deserve to enjoy something this special for your efforts.

Whether you’re into the classic halloumi & veg combo, a killer honey-garlic chicken option, or you want to push the boat out with a spicy prawn number — we’ve got something to suit everyone.

Here’s how to make them.

 

1. Sriracha Prawn Skewers

If you’re after something to spice up your BBQ menu, this is definitely the recipe for you.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 50ml soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 tsp. sriracha
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Lemon zest
  • Lime zest
  • Pinch of salt
  • 600g prawns

Method

1) First, add all of the ingredients for the marinade to a bowl and stir well so that the mixture is properly combined.

2) Add the prawns making sure that they’re fully covered in the marinade, and then leave to marinate for 1 hour.

3) Then, carefully slide each prawn onto your skewers to build them up. We’ve gone for 4 prawns on each one.

4) Place on your BBQ and grill until the prawns are cooked through. They should turn from a pale grey to a deep pink with a crispy outside.
