Spicy Garlic Prawns Ingredients

  • Garlic: fresh garlic adds a bunch of delicious flavor to the prawns.
  • Gochujang sauce: a Korean chili paste that offers the prawns a wonderful salty, spicy, umami flavor.
  • Rice vinegar: brings an acidity to the marinade for a deeper flavor profile.
  • Sesame oil: adds a nutty, earthy taste to the marinade.
  • Honey: adds just the right amount of sweetness to balance out the spicier notes.
  • Soy sauce: another key ingredient to the marinade to give it a well-rounded flavor.
  • Prawns: we used large prawns that were deveined and peeled. However, jumbo shrimp works just as well!

What’s the difference between shrimp and prawns?

Although they look and taste similar, shrimps and prawns are two different species. Shrimp only have one pair of legs with claws at the end, while prawns have three pairs with claws. Prawns are also typically larger than shrimp and tend to have a sweeter, meatier taste.

Tips for Cooking Prawns

When shopping for fresh prawns or shrimp at the grocery store, look for the peeled and deveined kind. The deveining and peeling process is tedious, so this will save you time and frustration.

Can you use frozen prawns/shrimp? YES! But make sure it’s thawed before you make this recipe.

Can you use cooked prawns/shrimp? We don’t recommend using already-cooked shrimp for this recipe.

How to Make Spicy Garlic Prawns


Add the garlic, gochujang, vinegar, sesame oil, honey, and soy sauce to a large mixing bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until smooth. 


Next, transfer the prawns to the bowl with the marinade. Then toss the prawns until they are covered and let them marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours in the refrigerator


Preheat the oven to broil and spread the marinated prawns across a baking sheet so they are not touching. 

Broil the prawns for 2-3 minutes on each side. The prawns are ready when they start to curl. Immediately remove the prawns from the baking sheet so they don’t overcook. 


There you have it! A delicious chili prawns recipe. Serve your prawns on their own or over rice for a complete meal. Enjoy!
