About this recipe

If you’re on the hunt for a quick and delightful meal, my Lemon Garlic Prawn skewers will hit the spot. As someone who loves experimenting in the kitchen, I can assure you that these prawns are not just easy to whip up, but they’re also bursting with flavour. Pairing perfectly with a range of sides, these Lemon Garlic Prawns are a versatile dish that’ll brighten up any dining table.

Just like my popular Spinach Ricotta Sourdough Bake and the always-a-hit Crispy Cauliflower Snacks, this recipe is straightforward yet impressively delicious. And if you’re keen on something a bit unique, try serving these prawns with my Brussel Sprouts with a Middle Eastern twist, featuring a lush tahini dressing. Trust me, they might sound unconventional, but these combinations are simply moreish and will leave you wanting more.

Made with everyday ingredients and requiring minimal prep, these Lemon Garlic Prawn skewers are a testament to my belief that great food doesn’t have to be complicated. The key lies in fresh, quality prawns and the perfect balance of lemon and garlic. Once you’ve tried them, I’m confident they’ll become a regular feature in your culinary repertoire, just like they have in mine.



  • 32 small cooked prawns, ready to eat
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely crushed
  • 5-6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup very finely chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 skewers (wooden or metal)

Notes from Rouba

  • Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.
  • If using frozen prawns, ensure they are completely thawed and patted dry to avoid wateriness.


Step 1.

Prepare the Prawns: Thaw the prawns if frozen and pat dry with paper towels.

Make the Marinade: In a bowl, combine the minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and chopped parsley. Whisk well. Season with salt and pepper.


Step 2.

Skewer the Prawns: Place four prawns onto each skewer. Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes beforehand if using.

Marinate the Prawns: Place the skewers in a flat dish. Pour the marinade over the prawns, ensuring they are evenly coated. Let them marinate for 10-15 minutes.


Step 3.

Cook the Prawns: Preheat a fry pan or grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the prawn skewers on the pan. Grill them for about 2 minutes on each side, ensuring they are heated through and develop grill marks. As they cook, brush the remaining marinade from the dish over the skewers to infuse extra flavour and moisture.
