Charred prawns on skewers with lime

Charred prawns on skewers with lime recipe – Crush pepperberries with a mortar and pestle, then stir in palm sugar and fish sauce until sugar dissolves.

A snack grilled on a skewer is a fast and easy party starter. These prawns are lightly flavoured with the peppery-herbal notes of native pepperberry. No pepperberry? Black pepper is a nice alternative.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp pepperberries (see note)
  • 60 gm light palm sugar
  • 60 ml (ΒΌ cup) fish sauce
  • 20 medium uncooked prawns, heads and tails removed, cleaned
  • Macadamia oil, for brushing
  • 1 finger lime, halved
  • Juice of 2 limes, plus wedges to serve
  • Coriander sprigs, to serve

Method

  • 2Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan to medium-high heat and grill prawns, turning occasionally, until opaque and just cooked (2-3 minutes). Squeeze finger lime and lime juice over prawns, season to taste with sea salt flakes, scatter with coriander and serve with lime wedges.
