These fabulous skewers make a great starter or light lunch, and can also be made using chunks of firm white fish, scallops or even cherry tomatoes.
Prep time: 15 mins + chilling
Cook time: 2-8 mins
24 large raw prawn tails
¼ cup olive oil
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp salt
Ground black pepper
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
500g Home-Made Haloumi or store-bought haloumi, cut into 2cm cubes
4-5 small-medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into ribbonsusing a vegetable peeler
4 tbsp lemon juice
Extra coriander leaves
Place prawns in a bowl with oil, lemon zest, salt, pepper and coriander. Mix to combine. Cover and chill for at least 15 minutes or up to 4 hours.
When ready to cook, thread one end of a zucchini ribbon onto a skewer and thread a prawn on top. Fold zucchini over the top of the prawn and skewer, then place another prawn on top and repeat with another fold of zucchini (you end up with an S shape of zucchini with two prawns in between). Repeat with remaining prawns to make 12 skewers. Brush with any leftover marinade.
Make haloumi skewers by wrapping zucchini ribbons around each haloumi cube and stacking 3-4 cubes per skewer. You will end up with about 12 skewers. Brush with a little of the lemon juice.
The skewers can be prepared ahead to this stage and stored, covered, in the fridge for up to 4 hours until needed.
When ready to serve, grill skewers over high heat until golden-brown and cooked through (about 2 minutes each side) or roast for about 8 minutes in an oven preheated to 250°C. Drizzle with the remaining lemon juice, sprinkle with coriander leaves and season with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges.
