Recipe by Christiana Argyrou from Seedoflife Health



  • 3 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 lemon, juice squeezed
  • 1 tsp lemon rind
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 25g garlic butter (or unsalted butter) softened to room temperature
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 handful parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)

To serve

  • 1 tbsp parsley leaves to garnish
  • 2 lemons cut into quarters
  • 1 lime cut into quarters
  • Warm crusty sourdough bread topped with olive oil and dukkah


Step 1

Wash the prawns with cold water

Step 2

Place all the marinade ingredients into a food processor and process until just combined but not over processed.

Step 3

Place the prawns into a large bowl and pour in 3⁄4 of the marinade, making sure all the prawns are covered. Then refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Heat up the BBQ to full temperature, then lower to medium and place the prawns on the BBQ shell side down until cooked. There is no need to flip the prawns (5-8 minutes).

Step 5

Baste with the remaining marinade to your liking while the prawns are cooking.

Step 6

Remove the prawns and squeeze over a little more lemon, salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley leaves.

Step 7

Serve with crusty warm bread.
