Marinated Prawns Preparation

1 kg prawns
4 ripe tomatoes
2 onions
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp. saffron
Salt & pepper
4 red peppers
2 glasses of cold water
1 glass of white vinegar
2 limes (cut into 4)
2-3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 minced clove garlic
1½ tsp. fresh ginger
1 tsp. chopped lemongrass


Preparing the dish:

  • Thoroughly clean the prawns, keeping the shells.
  • Finely chop the onions lengthwise.
  • Seed and cut the tomatoes into small cubes.
  • Put all the spices (thyme, garlic, ginger, pepper and chopped lemongrass) in a mortar, then crush them.

Preparing the marinade:

  • Place the prawns with olive oil, vinegar and crushed spices in a large bowl.
  • Mix well and let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Heat the griddle to 482°F (250°C), then lower to 392°F (200°C).
  • Put the prawns on the griddle and cook for 2 minutes, then turn them over and let brown for 2 minutes.
  • Lower the other side of your griddle to 212°F (100°C), and then place the onions and tomatoes on it. Brown them.
  • On a hot dish, arrange your prawns, brushed at the last moment with a little marinade, with the cooked tomatoes and onions.

Advice: Accompany the dish with a white rice with lemon zest.
