These Bacon King Prawns are a super easy way to serve prawns that are sure to please guests.

Ingredients (serves 20)

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish (or more if you like more of a kick)
  • 20 lextra arge prawns peeled and deveined
  • 1 fresh basil leaf per prawn
  • 8 thin-sliced bacon strips, cut in half or thirds, depending on length
  • 1 wooden toothpick per prawn


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine the barbecue sauce with the horseradish in a small bowl.
  2. Wrap each prawn with a basil leaf and then a piece of bacon. Try not to overlap the bacon, as you want it to cook evenly. Use a toothpick to secure the bacon in place. Arrange prawns on a baking sheet.
  3. Place the prawns in the oven and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes, or until they are just turning pink on one side. Flip to other side. Make sure bacon is crispy
  4. Remove prawns from the oven and baste all sides with the barbecue-horseradish sauce. Place prawns back in the oven for about 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  5. Remove the prawns from the oven, baste one more time with the sauce, and serve hot with extra sauce on the side.

  • you had me at bacon :D


  • Really nice combination of ingredients


  • Another lovely interesting prawn recipe …thanks for sharing.


  • These seriously look amazing! Love prawns and I love bacon!!! I would really like to try what the two combined, would taste like!


  • Guess what I’m having tomorrow.


  • Oh my gosh how great would these be


  • I love these. My hubby and son are not fans of prawns (eek!) but if I disguised them like this, I imagine they’ll gobble them up. I know I will.


  • These will go down very well at any time


  • Yes please – these look and sound amazing!


  • This sounds divine but not sure the prawns would last long enough for me to use this way. Hubby would have cooked and eaten them before I had everything prepared.


  • My hubby is not a huge fan of prawns, but… I think this could do the trick and turn him into a prawn loving guy!


  • thanx for sharing but not for me.


  • Every Friday is seafood night in our home and my kids always look forward to it. I’m definately trying this one out, just one Friday I can except forgive the bacon.


  • Bacon and prawns, win win!


  • Upon reading this, I have found a new way to do the prawns for Christmas. Thank you for this.
