Grilled Prawns using Sukiyaki Sauce with Mayo - Strawberry dip

Sharing my son's favourite dish which is named as "prawn Stick" by him :) The process of the dish is quite simple yet tasty. The prawns are cleaned without discarding the tail part and marinated in the given sauces for a minimum of 45 minutes. More the marination time, the prawns gets the lovely flavour. Though these yummy prawns can be served with any dip, this strawberry dip gives a flavor fight in each bite. The mild tanginess from the dip and spicy taste from prawns compliments each other to give a delicious starter. In this recipe, I have used dried strawberries which can also be substituted with fresh ones.

Ingredients :

40 Medium sized prawns
3 Tbsp Sukiyaki Sauce
1/2 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1/4 Tsp Pepper powder
1 Tsp Wasabi Paste
1 Tsp Lemongrass powder
Oil for grilling

For Dip :

1/2 Cup Mayonnaise ( For extra flavour, use flavoured mayo )
2 Tbsp Sukiyaki sauce
10 Dried Strawberries, Finely chopped
Few finely chopped Mint leaves
A pinch of pepper powder

Method :

Clean the prawns leaving the tail part on it and keep aside.

Prepare marination by mixing sukiyaki sauce followed by fish sauce, pepper powder, wasabi paste and lemongrass powder.

Add the cleaned prawns to the marination and mix well.

Marinate it for 30 - 45 mins.

Meanwhile, prepare a dip for grilled prawns by mixing all the ingredients given in "For Dip" and refrigerate till serving.

Soak the wooden skewers in water for 15 mins before grilling.

Take one skewer and insert the marinated prawn placing tail part on top.

Repeat the process for the remaining marinated prawns and keep aside.

Grease the grill pan with oil and place the prawn skewers on it.

Grill it in a medium flame until both the sides gets cooked. ( Brush the marinated juice on top of prawns while grilling )

Once done, remove from the grill pan and place the remaining marinated prawn skewers.

Serve hot with the prepared Mayo - Strawberry Dip.


  1. Love the strawberry mayo dip you have made adding flavours like mint and sukiyaki sauce. Maybe I should try the sauce with some tofu.

  2. Wow.... this snack is to die for.. I am a great fan of prawns. Will give it a try if I find the Sukiyaki sauce.

  3. This would be perfect to serve at a garden party or barbecues.I love the sauce and the addition of fruit to it.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
