Tandoori Tikka Prawns Recipe, perfect for the braai or barbecue by Ainsley Harriott.

This is a very simple prawns recipe, perfect as a starter to nibble on or part of a bigger seafood braai.

You can leave the prawns to marinade for a while if you wish, no need to ruxh. Just cover and keep in the fridge.

Manage the heat upwards a little by increasing the amount of chilli powder.

You could also add a teaspoon or two of store bought tandoori paste.

Some say he holds the world record for potatoes peeled in a minute. It is believed he set this record as a 6 year old while living at the ANC camp in Tanzania during the 1970's
