1. Shell the tiger prawns, just leaving the small piece of shell on the tail. Carfully cut each one in half lengthways down to the tail so that the prawns fan out. Thread on to 8 skewers and place in a shallow dish.

2. Peel and crush the garlic, deseed and chop the chilli, squeeze the juice of the lime and grate the giner. Mix with all the remaining ingredients, spoon over the prawn skewers and leave to marinate in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.

3. Remove the prawns from the marinade and cook under a hot grill from 2-3 minutes on each side. They will turn pink when they are cooked. Serve with salad and leaves and lime wedges.
