Sticky Sesame Prawn Skewers

These easy-to-eat sticky sesame soy skewers are a great dinner party starter.


  • 130ml Kikkoman Sesame, Ginger & Soy Marinade and Sauce, plus extra to serve
  • 40g honey
  • 24 medium green prawns, peeled, cleaned, tails intact
  • 8 shiitake mushrooms, halved
  • 8 spring onions, trimmed and cut into 7cm lengths
  • Vegetable oil, for drizzling
  • Roasted sesame seeds and steamed jasmine rice, to serve

Quick Pickled Cucumber

  • 1 1/2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved, seeds removed, cut into julienne
  • 50ml rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp caster sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped


Stir Kikkoman Sesame, Ginger & Soy Marinade and Sauce and honey in a small saucepan over low heat to combine, cool completely then combine with prawns in a bowl, cover and refrigerate to marinate for 30 minutes.

Drain prawns from marinade and thread onto metal skewers, starting with a prawn, then a mushroom half, then a piece of spring onion, repeating once more, then finishing with a prawn. Cover and refrigerate until required.

To make quick pickled cucumber, combine ingredients and sea salt to taste in a bowl and stand until lightly pickled (15 minutes).

Heat a char-grill or barbeque to high heat. Drizzle prawn skewers with oil and cook, turning occasionally, until slightly charred and cooked through (3-4 minutes).

Serve hot, drizzled with extra Kikkoman Sesame, Ginger & Soy Marinade and Sauce, scattered with roasted sesame seeds, with steamed rice.
