We have a George Foreman Grill which we put to continuous use...especially to grill burger patties and now, we even make pancakes in them. Since the weather in this part of the world is quite unpredictable, and since we've had bad luck with bbq's all the time, we have to depend on indoor grills like these to feel all summery.
What i love about this grill is, how everything gets cooked so fast. I would also have to agree its a much healthier option, since the oil drips down. It has indeed made us highly fond of grilling and this prawn and chorizo on skewer is such an easy bbq/ grill idea that the whole thing is ready in a matter of 15 minutes, i.e, if you are really not keen on a half hour marinating period (like us)
All said and done, George Foreman Grill or not, these can be whipped up in the oven or on stove top as well. So the next time you have a bbq planned, make sure this is def. on your menu.
King Prawns- 250 grams or about 25 to 30, deveined but preferably with tail on.
Mild paprika- 1 tsp
Lemon juice- 1/2 tbsp
Garlic cloves- 2, lightly crushed
Olive oil- 2 tbsp
Chorizo sausages- about 15 to 16 small slices
Chopped parsley- 2 tsp (I used about 1 tbsp dried parsley)
Pepper powder- to taste
Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp (optional)
Wooden skewers- 8, soaked in cold water for atleast 1/2 an hour
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl and marinate the prawns and chorizo in it for half an hour or more. I didnt have the patience, so i used it immediately and it tasted just fine.
Thread the prawns and chorizo, alternating, on to each skewer.
If using an electric grill or bbq cook for about 3 to 4 minutes max on each side.
If using the grill mode in the oven, then preheat the oven to 175C and grill for about 6 to 7 minutes, each side..the oil from the chorizo oozes out, so keep a baking paper on a tray and do the needful.
On stove top, heat a large enough frying pan or griddle pan and do the 3 minute on each side cooking method...again loads of oil will ooze out of the chorizo. Drain on paper towels if necessary.
You can squeeze a lime on top if needed...season with more pepper and serve as an appetizer.
I had guests waiting to dig in and so couldn't take pics of the end result.
