I wanted to share with you one of my recipes aiming to bring a Mauritian beach side BBQ feel but using my griddle pan, because lets face it, it is pretty darn cold outside for a BBQ (In the UK). For those lucky enough to be in a warmer country, this is a great quick to cook recipe, you just need some time for the marinating the prawns. Accompanied with our mango & chilli salsa, inspired by my Mauritian heritage, its a great dish!

Coriander flecked tropical grilled prawns with a chilli and mango fiery salsa to accompany.


  • 2025 large raw prawns, peeled with heads and tails intact, cleaned

  1. Firstly, clean the prawns, squeeze over some lime.
  2. Place chillies, spring onions, onion, coriander, mint, 80ml oil in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the salsa to a bowl and set aside for later.
  3. Pour over prawns. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to marinate.
  4. Place remaining salsa in processor and process with remaining 2 tbs oil and mango chunks for a smooth paste or you can choose to leave it chunkier. Set this aside.
  5. Skewer the prawns alternatively threading with peppers or other vegetables if you wish.
