My coconut water marinated prawns with sweet and sour mango salsa are a celebration of light, fresh, zingy summer flavours designed to be whipped up in the sun with your friends and family.

  1. Preheat your BBQ on high heat.
  2. To make the marinade, mix 1 cup (250ml) of tequila or coconut water, ginger, lime juice/rind, chilli and garlic in a bowl or container. Add prawns, then cover and marinate in the fridge for 10-20 minutes.
  3. While the prawns are marinating, make your salsa. Mix the mango, chilli, coriander, honey, lime juice, rind, salt, and pepper in a bowl. 
  4. Skewer each prawn lengthways down the spine towards the tail, then barbecue for 2 minutes on each side until golden. 
  5. Serve on a tray with a side of smashed avocado, your sweet and sour salsa, and a mix of little gem lettuce leaves (for gluten-free) or tortillas.
