Creamed Corn with Harissa Prawns

35 Minutes | easy | Serves 2-4

The sweetness of the creamed corn and the natural sweetness of the prawns works really well together in this speedy BBQ recipe. We use harissa to give the prawns a kick of chilli heat that adds another dimension to the dish. Garnish with plenty of fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime, if you like.


  • 12 king prawns
  • 1 tablespoon harissa
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Oil, for cooking
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 x 340g can sweetcorn, drained (285g drained weight)
  • 1 handful coriander leaves
  • 4 tablespoons single cream
  • 40g butter



Add a small dash of oil

Add a small dash of oil to a frying pan and soften the onion gently for about 15 minutes.

Preheat two burners

Preheat two burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to high.



Combine the harissa and olive oil and rub ¾ of it all over the prawns, then skewer and transfer to the BBQ. Cook for a minute each side, or until totally pink.

Serve the cooked prawns on top of the creamed corn with the remaining harissa oil and coriander.


Harissa makes a quick and easy flavour paste for these prawns, but you could also use curry paste to give them a big boost of flavour.
