How to cook Cajun prawns on the Weber Spirit II E-310 gas BBQ
Fresh spicy prawns cooked in minutes make for a delicious appetiser
This is one of the quickest dishes to cook on the BBQ, literally taking about 5 – 10 minutes to assemble and prep the ingredients and about 2 minutes to cook. The team found these to be quite mild so if you like quite a kick then double the amount of Cajun seasoning. These would make a great appetiser with a nice chilli mayo to snack on while waiting for the mains to come off the grill.
- 680g (1½lb) fresh prawns; shelled and deveined
- 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
- ½ onion; chopped
- 2 cloves garlic; grated
- 2 red bell peppers; chopped
- small can sweetcorn; drained

Drizzle the oil into the Dutch oven and once it’s hot add the onion and peppers and saute for about a minute until tender.
Add the prawns and the rest of the ingredients except the lemon juice and the parsley.
Once the prawns have turned pink, about 2 – 3 minutes, remove from the grill then add the lemon juice.
Garnish with the chopped parsley.
