New Zealand Barbecue Prawn Skewers with Chilli & Lime

What's the big idea?

This recipe is typical of a modern New Zealand dish; it takes the great quality fresh seafood which is in plentiful supply, blends it with a south-east Asian influence which is so popular in New Zealand and Australia, and then cooks it outside on a brabecue!

Remember to allow time for marination.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped
  • 12 extra large prawns, tails left on
  • Bamboo skewers

What To Do

  • In a mortar and pestle grind the sesame oil, garlic, chilli, cumin, ginger, zest and juice of one of the limes, and coriander together until well combined - you could alternatively do this in a blender
  • Place the prawns in a medium sized bowl. Rub the marinade over the prawns and refrigerate until needed
  • Soak the skewers in water for an hour, then thread a prawn onto each skewer
  • Heat a barbecue or grill to a high heat, and cook for 1-2 minutes, turn and repeat on the other side
  • Serve hot - use the second lime as a garnish
