Recipe Of The Week - Lime Pickle Prawn Skewers For National Barbecue Month!


May is National Barbecue Month and the beginning of the season for families and friends to gather and enjoy the outdoors.

Barbecues are a great way to get together with loved ones, but they are also an excellent method of cooking your feast without the stress and mess that can come with cooking a Sunday roast.



Cutting down on time, and therefore stress is so easy when it comes to having a BBQ. Simply marinade your meat or fish the day before, store in the fridge, and you’ll have a tasty and succulent main dish ready to be cooked immediately. Also cut up and prepare your vegetables and salad ingredients that morning, likewise, this will then be all ready to go whenever you need it, giving you the time to enjoy your BBQ surrounded by friends and family.


Lime Pickle Prawn Skewers

Lime pickle prawn skewers are so easy and deliciously hot with the addition of lime pickle. For other family members, you may like to tone the heat down a little with the addition of some plain yoghurt on the side – yoghurt puts out the fire. Serve with a large green salad.

Serves 4-6


  • 24 large tiger prawns, peeled and de-veined


  • 2 heaped TBS hot lime pickle
  • 3 TBS natural yogurt
  • 1 small piece ginger, grated


  1. Blitz all of the ingredients for the marinade in the food processor and pour over the prawns
  2. Marinate for at least 30 minutes
  3. To cook the prawns, heat a griddle pan or BBQ until it is very hot
  4. Thread the prawns on the bamboo skewers and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until pink and opaque
  5. Serve immediately with a large green salad
