Grilled Prawns with Creamy Onion Sauce

By on September 9, 2016


Serves 2


  • ½ a cup of Chris’ Heritage Vintage Cheddar and Caramelised Onion Dip.
  • 12 green whole prawns.
  • 1 large zucchini, cut into ribbons (you can do this with a vegetable peeler)
  • ½ a cup of milk
  • 1-2 tsp of hot chilli sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of chopped basil, + extra for garnish
  • 2 packet papadams



To cook the prawns:

  • Skewer the prawns onto 2 skewers (one skewer near the tail and one near the head – this makes it easier to handle).
  • Under a grill on a foil-lined tray, or on a BBQ, spray the prawns well with olive oil.
  • Cook until they turn orange and begin to char before turning for the same effect on the other side.

To Make the Sauce:

In a small saucepan, bring the dip, milk, tbsp. of basil and chilli sauce, if you’re using it, to a low simmer.

Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.

To Assemble:

  • Arrange the zucchini ribbons on half of a large platter.
  • Place the cooked prawn skewers on top.
  • Pour the sauce over the prawns & zucchini.
  • Microwave the 2 papadams for 40 seconds (or as per packet instructions) until crisp and crumble in your hands.
  • Sprinkle the crunchy pappadam pieces over the prawns, along with extra basil leaves & enjoy!
