I love prawns. They cook quickly in so many ways to make a great appetizer, snack, or meal. So, when She Who Must Be Obeyed said she wanted prawn appetizers when I was making some chicken wings in the smoker, I was happy to oblige.

Soy Lime Prawns 01.jpg


I took 10 deveined and shelled prawns and put them in a marinade of:

  • 50 ml (1/4 cup) soy
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) lime juice
  • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) Sriracha
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
I let them marinade in the fridge for 1 to 3 hours.

My Traeger Timberline was already preheated to 425 F (218 C) for the chicken wings so I skewered 5 prawns each onto two bamboo skewers and put the prawns in the smoker. I cooked them for 4 minutes then brushed them with the marinade. I turned them and cooked for 3 minutes more.

The Verdict

I love these. Easy and so tasty. Add to that, She Who Must Be Obeyed was pleased and all was well with the world.

I missed this one when it came out. Wish I hadn't. 'cause those look great.
My only question, seeing as how there are only 10, just what did SWMBO get-----the tails????

Shrimp didn't over cook? i usually do them in the Weber and 7 minutes is shoe leather.

Wings another post? I've got wings on the weekend menu.

Looks delicious as usual, Disco. I'm always looking for new Shrimp recipes, and this looks and sounds like I'm going to try next. The Mrs. doesn't eat much Shrimp, so it's all for me! Nice work.

That looks great, I would take a couple of those down no problem! Unfortunately my GF has a shrimp allergy and I haven't had one for over a year :emoji_anguished:
Curious, have you ever done New Orleans BBQ shrimp?

No chance! She Who Must Be Obeyed loves her seafood. I was lucky to get some!

Finger food supper!

Nope, it didn't over cook but I did do it on the top rack of my Traeger which has great air circulation without much direct heat from below. In a Weber, the direct heat would shorten the cooking time.

As for the wings, yes, I have a wing post in the tube but I won't get to writing it up till tonight. Sorry!

I could tear a few of those skewers up.
Start driving, I'll start cooking!

Thanks so much! Now make some prawns for the lovely wife!

Thanks and sorry to hear about the GF.

I haven't heard of New Orleans BBQ shrimp. Can you fill a fat old Canadian in? They sound great.
