  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • ½ tbsp brown monk fruit sweetener
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 500 g prawns, extra large, peeled and deveined with tails on
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch coriander, fresh, for garnish
  • ½ lime, cut into 2 wedges for garnish
  • 8 wooden skewers, pre-soaked for 1 hour in water


  • In a small bowl combine sriracha sauce, brown monk fruit sweetener, lime juice and garlic. Mix well to combine and ensure the sweetener has dissolved.
  • Thread prawns evenly among the bamboo skewers. Brush generously with two-thirds of the sriracha marinade and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside the remaining marinade.
  • Heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat. Grill the prawns for 2 to 3 minutes on one side, then turn, brush again with the remaining marinade, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until the prawns are firm and opaque in the centre.
  • Divide the prawn skewers between two plates, squeeze a wedge of lime over each and sprinkle with coriander to serve.


Tip: If using frozen prawns ensure they are fully defrosted before cooking.
