Special Diet

  • 50 g (2 oz) gherkins, finely chopped
  • 50 g (2 oz) cucumber, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped dill
  • 400 g (13 oz) raw tiger prawns
  • salt and pepper

Presoak 12 wooden skewers in warm water. Mix together the gherkins, cucumber and shallot in a small dish. In a separate bowl mix together the oil, vinegar and dill and season to taste.

Thread about 4 prawns on to each skewer and cook under a preheated hot grill for about 10 minutes, turning once or twice, until the prawns are cooked through.

Arrange the prawn skewers on 4 plates. Pour the dressing over the gherkin mixture and stir to mix. Spoon the relish over the prawns and serve with new potatoes, if liked.
