Grilled Caramelised White Prawns

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 4 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 750 g green tiger prawns
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper

Caramelised White, Apple and Fennel Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 25ml Caramelised White
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 50 g fennel, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • To garnish: a few fresh chives


  1. Peel and de-vein the prawns, leaving the tail shells on. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Heat a small nonstick frying pan over medium heat and dry-fry the fennel seeds for 1–2 minutes, then grind coarsely in a spice mill or with a pestle and mortar. Whisk together with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and the other ingredients for the dressing.
  3. Heat the griller to medium-high. Toss the prawns in the oil and season to taste, then grill for 2 minutes on each side, or until pink and opaque.
  4. Divide the prawns between serving plates, pour over the dressing, garnish with chives and serve warm or at room temperature.
