Recipe Honey Grilled Squid and Prawns

Grilled seafood dishes offer a tantalizing combination of flavors, and when honey is added to the mix, it takes the taste to a whole new level. One such dish that perfectly encapsulates this savory-sweet goodness is Honey Grilled Squid and Shrimp. Here’s how to prepare this delectable dish:


  • 500g squid, cleaned and scored
  • 500g shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges and chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Marinate the Seafood:

    • In a bowl, combine minced garlic, honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
    • Add the cleaned squid and peeled shrimp to the marinade, ensuring they are evenly coated.
    • Let the seafood marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Preheat the Grill:

    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 375°F to 400°F (190°C to 200°C).
  3. Grill the Seafood:

    • Thread the marinated squid and shrimp onto skewers, alternating between the two.
    • Place the skewers on the preheated grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the seafood is cooked through and has grill marks.
  4. Serve:

    • Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and transfer the seafood to a serving platter.
    • Garnish with lemon wedges and chopped parsley for a fresh, vibrant touch.


  • Ensure the grill is well-oiled before placing the seafood to prevent sticking.
  • Do not overcook the seafood to maintain its tender texture.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes before threading the seafood to prevent them from burning on the grill.


  • Add a dash of chili flakes to the marinade for a spicy kick.
  • Substitute lime juice for lemon juice for a slightly different citrus flavor.
  • Experiment with different types of honey, such as wildflower or orange blossom, to vary the sweetness of the dish.
