Pan Grilled Prawns with a Yoghurt Dip

Gurgaon is the last place one should eat seafood at. But the heart wants what the heart wants. A hankering for prawns and a browse at the frozen section later I got myself a pack of frozen jumbo prawns. I didn’t want to make something elaborate. I’m all about quick meals these days. I just marinated them with some spices and pan grilled them for a couple of minutes – and BAM! quick and delicious plate of dinner was ready.



Jumbo prawns – 250 grams or a packet

Chilli garlic paste – 1 tbsp OR 1 tsp garlic paste and 1 tsp chilli powder

Mint – 1 tsp finely chopped

Turmeric – 1/2 tsp

Honey – just a dash

Salt – to taste

Olive oil – 1 tbsp


Marinate the prawns in the chilli garlic paste with mint, honey, salt and turmeric for about an hour.

Heat olive oil and grill these beauties for a couple of minutes on each side (or even less).

Yoghurt dip:

Take 1/2 a tub of plain yoghurt (or Greek), add some chopped coriander, mint and dill along with 1/2 tsp of garlic chilli paste or some chilli powder.
