Prawn skewers

Ingredients:
24 tiger prawns with heads and shells on
1 rounded tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cloves garlic, crushed
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Wooden skewers
1 lemon, cut into wedges, to serve

Method:
1. Place the whole prawns in a large bowl along with the smoked paprika, ground cumin, crushed garlic and lemon juice. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

2. Thread the prawns carefully onto the wooden skewers and cook on a preheated griddle pan for about  2 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

3. Serve immediately with mango salsa (see recipe below) and lemon wedges.

Mango salsa 

This can also be served with griddled chicken breasts. Don’t make the salsa too far in advance as it will become mushy – half an hour before serving is best.

Ingredients:
1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
4 ripe tomatoes, diced
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1 bunch coriander, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:
1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, season well and set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to mingle.

2. Adjust seasoning as required with more salt, pepper or lime juice.
