As the weather begins to seriously warm up, there’s no better time to fire up the barbecue and enjoy dinner al fresco. Wing Yip, the UK’s largest Oriental Grocer, has created a selection of flavoursome recipes to spice up your summer barbecues.

This week, we’ve got a delicious recipe for Wing Yip’s Skewered Sweet and Sour BBQ Prawns. This is a great option for those home cooks looking to impress this summer. Simply skewer the whole prawn from head to tail, then coat it in sauce and throw it on the barbecue. Serve with fresh lime to help clean sticky fingers.
