A great starter or to serve with a salad, marinate the prawns in a sauce made with garlic, chilli, tomato purée, paprika and red wine vinegar. Place on skewers and grill or barbecue for a quick and easy meal.

Serves: 6
2 small red chillies (or if not available, 1 tsp chilli flakes), deseeded and chopped
4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
3 tbsp tomato purée
1 tsp chilli flakes
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp olive oil
18 raw prawns (or if not available, then frozen & defrost them)
2 lemons, cut into wedges


Place the chillies, garlic, tomato purée, chilli flakes, red wine vinegar, paprika and oil into a blender with 70ml water and some salt, and blend until finely chopped.

Dip the prawns in the marinade and thread them onto metal skewers, or wooden ones that have been soaked in water for 10-15 minutes.

Heat an outdoor barbecue or use a griddle pan. Grill the prawns until for five minutes or until they turn a deep pink.

Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.

Why not try? Use our succulent chicken breast, cut into chunks, instead of the prawns. Just don’t forget to allow extra cooking time.
