Ingredients

For the Passionfruit Glaze:
  • 4 Passionfruit, pulp
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp Shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Lemon, zest
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme Leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Mint, roughly chopped
For the Prawns:
  • 12 thin slices Prosciutto, cut into quarters lengthwise
  • 48 Raw Crystal Bay Prawns, peeled and deveined, tails intact
  • 16 Bamboo Skewers, soaked in water
  • 2 tbsp Coles Brand Olive Oil

Method

  1. To make the skewers, gently wrap a strip of prosciutto around the top and centre portion of each prawn.

    TIP

    Devein A prawn: Remove the head, peel and remove the shell and legs. Use a small knife to make a slit along the middle of the back to expose the dark vein. Pull out the vein. To devein a prawn without cutting the back, use your fingers to carefully pull the vein through the opening at the head end.

  2. Place 3 prawns onto each skewer, slightly curled, to hold the prosciutto in place while the prawns cook.

    TIP

    Thread prawns onto the skewer with a slight bend so that the prosciutto holds when cooked.

  3. To make the glaze, whisk the passionfruit, honey, shallots, lemon zest, thyme and mint in a medium mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat the barbecue or a char-grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush the prawns with the glaze and char-grill. Cook the prawns on the char-grill for 2-3 minutes on one side without turning to ensure that the prosciutto crisps up.
  5. Flip prawns, brush with glaze and cook 2-3 minutes more before removing from the char-grill. (Note: the glaze will burn if spilled, be careful when basting the prawns).
  6. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and spoon any remaining glaze over the prawns.
  7. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and spoon any remaining glaze over the prawns.

TIP

When purchasing prawns, look for complete shells, firmly attached heads and no discolouration across the body of the prawn.
