The sweetness of the fizz combined with the sweet prawn meat and zingy citrus makes these a very moreish skewer. My hatred for waste extends even to the defunct lemon and lime here, but only use lemon zest – the lime zest will push the marinade over to the wrong side of zesty.

For the skewers:

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 lemon, finely zested and juiced
1 lime, juiced
2 cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
500ml lemonade
300g large prawns, raw and peeled
1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into 2 cm squares

For the melon salsa:

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 small cantaloupe melon, peeled
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 red onion, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
orange zest, finely grated

Method

  1. Soak 4 wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes, weighing them down with a mug or bowl. This will stop them from burning during cooking.
  2. Mix together the lemon zest, lemon and lime juices, ginger and lemonade in a flat dish that will fit the skewers. Cut the deflated lemon and lime halves into four pieces and thread these, the prawns and pepper alternately onto the skewers. Place in the marinade and leave for 2 hours, overnight if possible.
  3. Remove from the marinade and grill on the barbecue or under a hot grill for 5 minutes until cooked through. I serve these with a melon salsa; dice the melon into 1cm cubes and mix with the tomatoes, red onion and orange zest.
