Whether for a special dinner or an informal picnic, these smoky-sweet prawns are a lovely addition to a menu. Delicious!



Combine garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin and brown sugar in a large container with a tight-fitting lid. Add prawns and marinate for 1 hour or as long as overnight.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees.

Remove prawns from the marinade and pat dry. Wrap each prawn in a slice of pancetta. Brush each with a little sweet chili sauce and sprinkle with a pinch of sesame seeds. String on skewers and grill for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once. The pancetta should be golden and prawns opaque in the center.

Arrange prawns on a platter or individual plates and drizzle with the remaining sweet chili sauce. If you like, garnish with thin strips of green onion.
