Servings 6


  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp citrus lemon pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 9 slices bacon
  • 18 prawns
  • 18 wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 15 minutes


  • Combine butter and spices, add shrimp, stirring to coat the shrimp. Let shrimp marinate for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Slice bacon in half and cook over medium high heat to render out some fat, keeping bacon flexible. Drain the bacon and pat grease out with a paper towel.
  • Wrap each piece of shrimp with a piece of bacon. Slide onto skewers. If you use wooden skewers, the skewers need to be soaked in water for about 15 minute in water or use metal ones.
  • Grill on a hot grill until shrimp are opaque, basting with marinade while turning the shrimp.
