This week we've gone to Haiti for the 30th leg of our around the world in 80 bbqs journey. #aroundtheworldin80bbqs

The summer is now so close we can taste it, this dish is full of summery heat and flavour, we think it's a winner! Simple and so tasty.

Haitian creole style cuisine is a huge influencer of Louisiana BBQ fare and draws on influences from around the world; african, french and spanish too.

You'lll recognise haitian cuisine by the peppers and herbs used to bolster flavour and you often find it liberally seasoned too!

Haitian Prawns


  • Large knob of salted butter.
  • 1KG fresh uncooked king prawns.
  • Garlic, four cloves, chopped.
  • Bottle of Ale
  • A lemon
  • L&P Worcester Sauce
  • Creole Seasoning
  • Hot Sauce


To produce our Haitian Prawns we've used the following:

  • Weber Genesis S-330
  • Weber Gloves
  • Weber Wok Tools
  • Gourmet BBQ System Dutch Oven (8842)

    You can create this dish using a Dutch Oven on any Weber GBS compatible BBQ. A 57 charcoal Mastertouch for example or one of the three burner gas grills such as the Weber Spirit, Weber Genesis, or Weber Summit, with GBS cooking grates.


  • Set up your BBQ for indirect cooking.
  • Remove the central section of the GBS cooking grates and replace with the Gourmet BBQ System Dutch Oven (8842)
  • Heat up the pan/BBQ with the lid closed for circa 10 minutes until your BBQ hits around 200 degrees celcius.
  • Add butter and garlic, fry lightly just to release the aroma.
  • Pour in half a pint of ale (drink the other half).
  • Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.
  • Pour in half a pint of L&P worcester sauce (don't drink the other half!).
  • Sprinkle in two heaped tablespoons of Creole seasoning.
  • Pour in half a pint of your favourite brand Hot Sauce (we used frank's).
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add your uncooked prawns and stir to ensure even coating.
  • Close the lid of the BBQ but leave the Dutch Oven lid off and let the prawns cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir and ensure the prawns are cooked through.
  • Finish with a generous pinch of fresh chopped parsley.
  • Remove the piping hot dutch oven from the BBQ and carry straight to the table for a real wow factor, serve up some crusty french bread for dipping too, tuck in!
