Throw another Shrimp on the Barbie…mate

Lounging time again! Robo is our loverly host this week and has gone with the theme BBQ.

I’m going to share with you a recipe we use on the BBQ that is simply delicious.  The best part about it is that even if you aren’t a fancy pants with a Barbie the size of a small car, you can make these.  I have even done them in a fry pan on the stove.  They are that versatile!

Prawn and Bacon Rollups

  • 1kg Prawns, peeled with tails left on. (King Prawns work best)
  • 1kg Bacon, the less fat the better
  • Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Skewers or toothpicks


  1. In a bowl, mix together sweet chilli sauce and a few splashes of Worcestershire Sauce.
  2. Place the Prawns into the sauce mixture, making sure to cover all prawns well.  Leave them to marinate for at least 2 hours.  Ultimately the longer the better.
  3. Cut the bacon into strips wide enough to cover the middle of the prawns.
  4. Wrap each prawn in a strip of bacon, using the skewers or toothpicks to hold it in place.
  5. Cook on the BBQ!

The sweet chilli sauce creates a nice glaze on the bacon, making these morsels a delight!  Whenever they appear at a BBQ they don’t last long! For something different you can also use crab sticks.

What is your favourite thing to cook on the BBQ?

    Proof I really AM a bogan. I’ve never thrown a ‘shrimp’ on the barbie. Besides they’re prawns anyway. 😛

    These do look really yummy though. *drools*

      I must admit outside fish in foil we hadn’t really cooked much seafood on the bbq but these changed my mind quick smart!

      haha yes my partner mans the BBQ too. Quite happy for that too as it means he has to clean it as well!

    Yumness! I rarely cook prawns on the BBQ. I’m not a real aussie it seems. I just eat them raw. You know what I mean. Cooked, then cold. I’m so doing this next time it stops raining and being Arctic.

    YUM! You are quite the domestic goddess Teeg. We mainly stick to snags and steak but this has inspired me to lift my game! Plus I know the boys would love them.
