Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    For the dressing:
    -3 tbsp olive oil
    -Juice & zest 1 lemon
    -2 long red chillies, finely chopped
    -2 cloves garlic, crushed
    -A small bunch of flatleaf parsley, chopped
    -Salt & freshly ground black pepper

    For the kebabs:
    -300g raw king prawns
    -A bunch of spring onions, cut into 3cm lengths
    -4 long wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for 30 minutes

    For the salad:
    -200g quinoa
    -300g frozen soy beans (or use frozen peas if you prefer)
    -240g Tenderstem, cut into 3-4cm pieces


Begin by whisking together the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, chilli, garlic and parsley in a mixing bowl.

The season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing to another bowl, and toss in the prawns and the spring onions. Set aside to marinate whilst you make the salad.

Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions - about 12-15 minutes - and toss through the rest of the dressing whilst still warm.

Next, blanch the Tenderstem and soy beans (or peas) in boiling water for 3 minutes until just tender but with plenty of bite. Drain well and toss through the quinoa.

Taste to check the seasoning, adding a little more salt and pepper if necessary. Set aside while you finish the kebabs.

Take a wooden skewer and thread alternately with prawns and pieces of spring onion.

Heat a BBQ or griddle pan to hot and cook the kebabs for 2-3 minutes on each side until the prawns are pink and cooked through. Serve immediately with generous helping of salad.
