We would need some very common ingredients which are available almost every time at our kitchen

1/4 cup of chopped broccoli
1 small size carrot
2 tsp of olive oil

Method Of Preparation:

Step 1

Wash the prawn properly. Carefully take out the black thread like part from its head. Now take a mixing bowl. Add chopped garlic, lemon juice, chili flex, salt and white pepper powder into the bowl. Mix everything properly. Add this mixture to the prawn. Mix it with the prawn. Marinate them for around 10 minutes.

Step 4

Put the saute prawn that we have made in step 2 into grill. Now grill them for 15 minutes. Do not grill them for long time. It will become hard then and the taste will not be good. Whenever the prawn will change its color to golden, take them out off the grill.
