Ingredients
4 cloves of garlic
2 fresh red chillies
1/2 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
12 large Australian Green Prawns
A few sprigs of fresh mint
Olive Oil
2 lemons
1 tablespoon honey
50g feta cheese
50g rocket

Method
  1. Peel and finely chop the garlic and de-seed and finely chop the chillies.
  2. Place in a medium bowl with the paprika, oregano and prawns, then season with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Drizzle with a good lug of oil, toss everything together and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour in the fridge.
  4. If cooking the prawns on the barbecue, place 4 wooden skewers in a tray of water to soak, this will stop them from burning.
  5. Preheat the barbecue to medium or, if using a griddle pan, place over a high heat.
  6. Pick the mint leaves and halve the lemons.
  7. Shake any excess marinade off the prawns. If barbecuing, thread 3 prawns on each skewer and place on the barbecue with the lemon halves cut-side down. If griddling, place the prawns straight onto the griddle pan, with the lemons cut-side down. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until opaque and cooked through.
  8. Serve the prawns drizzled with the honey. Crumble over the feta and scatter over the mint leaves and rocket. Carefully squeeze over the charred lemons and serve straight away.

Tip: to double check the prawns are cooked, cut one open and check the inside – the flesh should be opaque.
