Super tasty barbecue prawns
( SERVES 4 )
If you want to make a tasty healthy salad with these prawns, they can be removed from their skewers after cooking and then and tossed with mango, avocado and cherry tomatoes, with a dressing of natural yoghurt mixed with the heated marinade. Serve with jacket potatoes or garlic bread. If using smaller prawns, double the quantity to four dozen.

- Mix all marinade ingredients together.
- Combine the prawns with marinade and leave in fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours.

- Season prawns with a little salt and cook on barbecue for 2 minutes, turning once.
- Heat remaining marinade in a small pot on the stove top, or in the microwave, then mix with yoghurt and coriander.
- Serve prawn skewers with yoghurt sauce to dip. Alternatively remove prawns from skewers and toss with mango, avocado, cherry tomatoes and the yoghurt sauce.
