Prawn Skewers

Steps: Squeeze juice from 3 big limes/lemons. Mix Lime juice with crushed garlic, add to the prawns, throw in all the spices and mix (I left it to marinade for about an hour before cooking). Put the prawns on skewers and Grill for about 5 minutes! Brush with any remaining marinade and put back on the grill for another 3-5…and Serve! Serve with a squeeze of the remaining limes.

(I served the meal with salad, coriander, onions and tomatoes tossed in balsamic vinegar and a little lime.)

Valentine's Day Dinner perhaps...
