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.
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
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.
