Prawns with Chimichurri Sauce

This is a garlic sauce that is great for any type of protein, especially grilled shrimp. Try this prawn recipe on skewers or stir fried with vegetables for your next family dinner.

Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 10 min

Cooking Time: 8 min

Ingredients
  • 2 to 10 cloves garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded, and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup red-wine or sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds jumbo prawns
Instructions
  1. Prepare the garlic. Traditionally this is a garlicky sauce, but the amount of garlic used would be according to personal taste. Combine the garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and mince finely.
     
  2. Add the oregano and parsley and pulse to a fine chop. Add the vinegar, olive oil and salt, processing until smooth and emulsified. (The sauce can be used immediately or pour into a jar, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use).
     
  3. Remove about 1/3 cup of the sauce to use as a baste for the prawns. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Place prawns on a well-oiled grill, 4 to 6 inches from the source of heat.
     
  4. Baste and cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until prawns are pink and cooked through. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side.

 

Notes

The sauce can also be used with beef, chicken, or pork.
