“Australia Day” the Aussie way with Prawns on the Barbie!

G’day everyone!

Put aside the T-bone, lambs cutlets, sausages and chicken and let’s celebrate “Australia Day” the Aussie way with Prawns on the Barbie!

I grew up learning the tools of the trade at an early age. But aside from measuring, quoting, and fitting those bench tops; I’m a traditional Aussie with the love of my red, white and blue tucker. I find the enjoyment through sharing my recipes with fellow friends and family. So let the ladies sit down and relax, and let the blokes do what they do best… Stand around the barbeque—one to cook, the other to chat, and the third to grab the next beers once the last ones look empty. So here’s how to enjoy the fair dinkum Aussie tucker this Australia Day with my famous BBQ prawns…
