Prawns may look puny but they pack a serious protein punch. They are also rich in iron. So mix up your protein source and try these delicious prawn skewers.

Garlic Prawn Skewers

500g Prawns

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil + 1 extra for cooking

2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped

8 Skewers

Salad leaves

2 Limes

Lime & Coriander Dressing

A small handful of Coriander

A small handful of Parsley

2 Garlic Cloves, chopped

Zest and juice of 1 Lime

1/2 Tablespoon Manuka Honey

¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Place the garlic and 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a bowl, add in the prawns and mix together. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Place the coriander, parsley, garlic, lime juice and zest, honey and extra virgin olive oil into a blender, and blend until well combined. Set aside while you cook the prawns.

Thread the marinated prawns onto the skewers and place to one side. Heat the remaining olive oil in a heavy based pan over a medium heat, place the prawn skewers into the pan and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden.

Serve with salad leaves, lime wedges and the lime and coriander dressing.
