Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Garlic Cilantro Sauce


Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Garlic Cilantro Sauce🍤⠀
1.5 lb uncooked prawns⠀
Salt and pepper⠀
Olive oil⠀
Roasted garlic-cilantro sauce:⠀
1 small head garlic, top trimmed off⠀
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves⠀
1 lime, juice of⠀
1 tbsp dry white wine⠀
3 tbsp olive oil⠀
2 tbsp chili sauce (or 1 tbsp dry chili flakes)⠀
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.⠀
Peel, devein and rinse the prawns or your choice of shrimp. Pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Place the prawns in the fridge until ready to grill.⠀
Trim the top of the garlic head off, but leave the garlic intact. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Roast the garlic in the 400 degree F-heated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until slightly tender and fragrant. When ready, remove from the oven. Let cool briefly. Peel and crush or chop the roasted garlic as finely as possible.⠀
Now prepare the roasted garlic-cilantro sauce. In a small bowl, combine the roasted garlic with the remaining sauce ingredients of cilantro, lime juice, white wine, olive oil and chili sauce. Whisk together and set aside.⠀
When ready, lightly oil and heat a cast-iron grill or griddle to medium-high. Dress the prawns with a little olive oil and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side. You want to achieve some char, but be careful not to overcook the prawns.⠀
Remove the prawns from the grill to a bowl and coat well with the roasted garlic and cilantro sauce. Transfer to a serving platter. Alternatively, transfer the grilled prawns to a serving platter and simply add the roasted garlic-cilantro sauce on the side.⠀
Serve with pasta or rice and a green salad for dinner; or simply as a party appetizer. Enjoy!
