Tropical Guava Prawns

An interesting marinade that is also good on pork or oily fish such as salmon or tuna. A dish inspired by the tropical islands in the Pacific Ocean, let this dish take you to a warm place.

2 Kiwi fruit roughly chopped

1 small red chilli

1 tsp grated fresh ginger

2 tbsp palm sugar

1 tbsp fish sauce

Juice of half a lime

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tbsp Guava Vinegar

16 large green prawns

small handful of chopped coriander


Place the kiwi fruits, chilli, ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, olive oil and Guava Vinegar in a food processer and blend until all smooth and still thick.

Place the palm sugar and 2 tbsp of water in a pot and heat until the sugar melts and is turning to a light caramel. Add to marinade, season and stir well.

Peel prawns, leaving tail and head on. Place in a bowl with half the marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Grill the prawns on a high heat, turning once until just cooked.

Arrange on a plate, drizzle over the left over marinade and sprinkle with chopped coriander. Serve immediately.
