Prawns marinated in a delicious soy marinade with ginger, garlic and sesame, served with a homemade satay sauce of cashew nuts and coconut milk.
Today a delicious recipe of grilled prawns from the bbq that are wonderfully marinated in a soy marinade with ginger, sesame and garlic. Then they’re grilled briefly so that they remain juicy with lots of flavor. In the meanwhile you can prepare the satay sauce quickly and easily with cashews and coconut milk.
That is of course always the question. Why choose peeled shrimp or the unpeeled variety. In terms of taste, both will not matter much. But there are some things that you can take into account. Never buy the cooked shrimp, because then you will get a tough bite after preparation.
And I don’t peel them in this case. In any case, if you call them in advance it means that you can do all the peeling alone (not my favorite piece). And when barbecuing, the dish protects against frying. In this case it is therefore better to leave the scale around (and I have done that).
This whole week you will receive recipes for a real American Style BBQ. And after we started with a few signature drinks, a rose vanilla iced tea and a delicious Sangria Blanca with Licor 43, the Bacon bourbon chicken skewer and the Blueberry melon salad came along. And today we supplement that with this delicious grilled shrimp with cashew nut satay sauce. But that is not the end of this week. So keep an eye on the website!
It’s a good taste!
