Sooooo good! I don't know why it called just "shrimp on the barbie" though...
It should be called "thai style coconut/green curry prawns"!
Everyone loved it at the party I made them for! ...looked really fancy on the lemongrass skewers too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine coconut milk, curry paste and garlic in a saucepan and bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until coconut milk has thickened slightly.
  2. Stir in lime juice and fish sauce, cool then toss with shrimp and marinate for 1 hour.
  3. Remove shrimp from marinade and thread shrimps onto lemon grass stalks, spearing shrimps in 2 places so that they don't turn on the skewers. Season with salt and pepper. (Reserve marinade.).
  4. Preheat grill to high.
  5. Brush shrimp with extra oil and grill about 2 minutes per side or until shrimps are cooked.
  6. While shrimp is cooking, place reserved marinade in a small pot over high heat, bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes or until quite thick (like mayonnaise).
  7. Remove from heat, stir in extra lime juice and sugar.
  8. Drizzle over grilled shrimp and sprinkle with mint.
