Raw peeled prawns

500 g, (8 large) peeled, deveined, tails intact


1 clove(s), crushed

Olive oil

1 tbs

Lean middle rasher bacon

162 g, (Buy 4x45g rashers), rind removed, fat trimmed

Lemon juice

2 tbs

Fresh dill

1 tbs, finely chopped

Fresh chives

1 tbs, finely chopped


  1. Combine prawns, garlic and half the oil in a medium bowl. Thread prawns lengthways onto 8 wooden skewers (see note).
  2. Cut each bacon rasher in half lengthways. Wrap 1 piece bacon around each prawn, leaving tails exposed.
  3. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue grill over medium-high heat. Cook skewers, turning, for 5 minutes or until prawns change colour and are just cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, combine juice, dill, chives and remaining oil in a small bowl. Serve prawns drizzled with herb dressing.


TIPS: You can use 4 slices (60g) prosciutto (fat trimmed) instead of bacon. Soak the skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before using to stop them burning during cooking.
