About this recipe: This is such an easy thing to throw together at the last minute when you need something for a crowd. Be sure to use king prawns - the cooking time for the prawns and the bacon is similar.


Serves: 3 

  • 16 large king prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 8 slices streaky bacon, cut in half
  • cayenne pepper, to taste

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C / Gas mark 8.
  2. Wrap prawns in bacon, securing with a cocktail stick.
  3. Line a roasting tray with aluminium foil and place wire cooling rack in tray. Place the prawns on the rack, and sprinkle with cayenne, and turn and sprinkle second side. Let the prawns sit for 15 minutes.
  4. Cook in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. The rack keeps the prawns from sitting in the draining bacon fat.
