Grilled lemon prawns with beer and garlic steamed mussels

The mussels are wrapped in foil and steamed, while the prawns are seasoned with lemon and pan-grilled quickly. Everything is then combined in a deep bowl together with the fragrant juices from the mussels.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 20 black mussels, cleaned
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 bird’s-eye chilli, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup continental parsley, torn into pieces
  • 1 tblsp butter
  • ½ cup beer
  • 24 large green prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 30ml extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ lemon, zest only
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat your barbecue on high for 10 minutes. Combine together the mussels, garlic, chilli, parsley, butter, beer, and seasoning. Carefully place into a double fold of foil lined with baking paper, and close the top to seal the parcel well.

Season the prawns with the olive oil, lemon zest, and seasoning. Place the mussel parcel onto the middle of the open grill and close the lid. Allow to cook for four minutes, then open the barbecue and place the prawns onto the open grill, around the mussels. After three minutes, open the hood and turn the prawns, giving them another three minutes to finish cooking.

Place the prawns onto a warmed plate. Open the mussel parcel and, using tongs, place the opened mussels on top of the prawns. Spoon some of the liquid over and serve.
