Smoked Paprika Prawn Skewers


  1. Soak the skewers in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, peel the prawns, leaving the tails intact, and devein. To do this, run a sharp knife down the back, making a tiny incision just enough to remove the visible black vein. Wash the prawns and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic, cumin, oregano, lemon zest and 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the prawns and leave to marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature. Then skewer a few prawns onto each stick.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a roomy frying pan and fry the prawns for 3-4 minutes, turning halfway through until just cooked. You may need to do this in batches. Season, squeeze over some lemon juice and serve.
