Grilled Prawns with Sesame Seeds Recipe
About Grilled Prawns with Sesame Seeds Recipe
It’s summer and it’s grilling time. One of my favorite things to make on an outdoor grill is grilled prawns or jumbo shrimp.
Prawns are delicious when grilled. Marinating with sesame seeds gives a crunchy layer to prawns which make them unbeatable.
I like grilling seafood because they are quick to cook and not to mention, also takes less time to marinate. Seafood generally tastes great by itself. So, a simple marinate should suffice.
