  • Be sure to buy peeled green prawns for this recipe, as it will be much easier to skewer them.
  • If you cannot find chorizo sausage, you can substitute with other sausages such as kielbasa or andouille.

  • Substitute chorizo sausage with turkey sausage – the benefit of this substitution is that it is a leaner option that is still full of flavor, making it a healthier choice.
  • Substitute olive oil with coconut oil – the benefit of this substitution is that coconut oil is a healthier fat that can help increase the good cholesterol in the body. It also has a unique flavor that will enhance the taste of the dish.

Vegan Skewers Replace the prawns and chorizo with firm tofu and bell peppers and omit the olive oil. Grill the skewers until the vegetables are cooked through (2-3 minutes). Serve with the green and gold dipping sauces, lemon wedges and micro coriander.

Grilled Vegetable Salad - A simple side dish of grilled vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, and bell peppers served over a bed of greens and dressed with a light vinaigrette. This dish provides a nice contrast to the skewered prawns and chorizo and adds a freshness to the meal.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp: A light and flavorful dish of shrimp sautéed in butter, garlic, and lemon juice. This dish complements the grilled vegetables and chorizo perfectly, adding a zesty flavor to the meal.


Q: What type of prawns should I use?

A: You should use large (1 kilogram) peeled green prawns with their tails on for this recipe.

Q: How long should I cook the prawns?

A: Cook the prawns for 3 to 5 minutes until they turn pink and are cooked through.
