Andy Allen's BBQ Prawns with Salsa Verde

To be honest, this salsa verde isn't just good for prawns. You could totally smash it on any type of fish, steak, chicken or veggies… pretty much anything you want to taste epic!

Prepping The Prawns

  1. Butterfly the prawns and remove the poop shoot.
    (No one likes to eat prawn shit!)

  2. In a small bowl, mix together a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, the zest of a lemon and a decent couple of pinches of salt and pepper.

  3. Brush the oil mixture over the flesh of the prawns.

  4. Throw the prawns on the BBQ or fire shell side down and let them cook for about 3 minutes or until the flesh starts to turn a pale whitish colour.
