Ingredients (serves 8)

16 (about 650g) large green king prawns, peeled leaving tails intact, deveined
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
2 tbs olive oil
Saffron mayonnaise
2 pinches of saffron threads
1 tbs hot water
2 egg yolks
1 cup (250ml) olive oil
1 1/2 tbs lemon juice

Method

Combine prawns, garlic, chilli and olive oil in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours to marinate.

To make the saffron mayonnaise, place saffron and 1 tbs of hot water in a small cup and set aside for 10 minutes to soak. Place the egg yolks in the bowl of a food processor and process until frothy. With motor running, gradually add oil in a thin, steady stream and process until thick. Add lemon juice and saffron water and process until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a container, or cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill.

Preheat a lightly greased barbecue or char-grill plate to high. Drizzle prawns with a little more oil. Cook, turning occasionally, for 2 minutes or until prawns change colour and curl. Serve immediately with the saffron mayonnaise.

Notes

Tip: If you don't have time to make mayonnaise from scratch, use a good quality, whole-egg mayonnaise and add the saffron water and lemon juice.
