Spiced Prawn Skewers

There’s nothing more quintessential than an Aussie prawn dish at a barbecue with friends. Not only are they tasty, but they’re paced with protein and super nutritious. Pair them with fresh mango and smoky paprika for a deliciously light and filling lunch.





  • 16 green prawns
  • 5 tbsp smoked paprika
  • coconut / olive oil spray
  • 2 mangoes
  • 8 sprigs fresh mint
  • 8 stalks fresh coriander
  • 1 green chilli, sliced
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, ribboned
  • 1 lime


  1. Heat your BBQ or Grill pan on high. Spray the prawns with the oil and toss to coat with paprika.
  2. Skewer through the neck and tail of 4 prawns, then add to the hot pan and cook for a few minutes before turning to cook through. Meanwhile, prepare the salad by removing the mango flesh and slicing.
  3. Add to a bowl along with the coriander, mint, chilli and cucumber.
  4. Squeeze over fresh lime and toss.
