Lime Ginger Prawns

Come on, it’s summer time and the breezes are light, the temperature is perfect for being on the deck with a great appetizer coming your way. I mean, after you  make it and then serve it to one and all, they will all want to be asked back.


  • 30 prawns, raw
  • 2 tsp. each of fresh lime juice and grated ginger
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • pinch of 5 spice powder
  • skewers that have been soaking for an hour

Shell and devein the shrimp, but leave the tails on.  Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in the prawns, making sure to coat and refrigerate for one hour, covered.

Thread the prawns on the skewers and fry in pan, making sure the oil is hot first. Do not over cook.

I told you it was easy. All you need now is some sliced pineapple and mango to accompany the shrimp. Oh yeah, I forgot ……don’t forget the wine.
