  • 500g whole raw prawns

  • 500g small whole squid, split in half and cleaned

  • Nam Jim Sauce:

  • 3 large garlic cloves (8 small Thai garlic cloves)

  • 3 coriander roots, cleaned, roughly chopped

  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • juice of 1 lime, or to taste

  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped chilli, or to taste


  • 1.

    For the nam jim sauce, place garlic in a mortar and pound lightly so you can remove the garlic skins. Add coriander root and pound to a rough paste. Stir in fish sauce, sugar and lime juice. Stir through chillies, adding more or less to taste.

  • 2.

    Grill whole prawns and squid on a hot BBQ grill plate until just cooked through (about 3-4 minutes per side). Slice squid into bit sized pieces. Serve squid and whole prawns with nam jim dipping sauce.
