  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2cm piece ginger, finely grated
  • ½ pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 2cm chunks
  • ½tbsp dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 limes, each cut into 8 pieces
  • 1tsp rapeseed oil

  • Mix the prawns with the chilli, garlic and half the ginger. Cover with clingfilm and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hrs, or ideally overnight.

  • Mix the pineapple with the remaining ginger and the muscovado sugar.

  • Thread the prawns, pineapple and lime wedges onto the skewers.
