Recipe


Ingredients

  • 500g prawns, peeled & deveined
  • Juice 2 limes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • ½ red capsicum, diced
  • ¼ red onion, finely diced
  • 3 tbsp pickled jalapeños, chopped
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • Salt, to taste

Method


  • In a bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil, minced garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Mix well to create a marinade.
  • Place the prawns in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 15-20 mins.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • To prepare the pineapple salsa, combine the diced pineapple, capsicum, red onion, jalapeño pepper, lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt and mix well to combine. Set aside.
  • Once grill is hot, place the marinated prawns directly onto the grill grates. Cook for approximately 2-3 mins each side, or until prawns are opaque and slightly charred. Remove and transfer to a serving platter.
  • Garnish grilled lime prawns with fresh coriander and serve alongside the pineapple salsa.
  • Tip: For an extra burst of freshness, add diced avocado to the pineapple salsa. It adds a creamy texture and complements the flavour of the prawns and pineapple beautifully. This dish can also be served with a side of coconut rice.
