This delicious recipe comes from Ainsley Hariott and is the perfect quick dish for the braai.
- 2 red onions
- 2 small lemons
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1⁄2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 medium hot chilli, seeded and finely chopped
- 24 large peeled raw prawns
- Salt and pepper
Peel the onions- leaving the root ends intact. Cut each into 8 thin wedges through the root so they stay intact. Cut each lemon into 6 thin wedges and then each one across into 2 small chunky pieces.
Mix the oil, sweet chilli sauce, lemon juice, garlic, red chilli and salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the prawns and onion wedges, mix well and leave to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Thread 3 prawns, 3 pieces of lemon and 2 onion wedges onto 8 metal skewers, alternating all the different pieces.
Braai on a medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side – make sure you use the extra marinade to brush over the skewers while they are cooking.
