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



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

Preheat grill to 400° F.

Remove prawns from 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 5 to 7 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 remaining sweet chili sauce. If you like, garnish with thin strips of green onions.
