GRILLED PRAWNS WITH LIME-VANILLA MASCARPONE & CANDIED ORANGE
SERVES 4 / PREPARATION 5 MINUTES / COOKING 6-7 MINUTES
You could buy mascarpone, but I have included a recipe should you wish to make your own.
8 whole raw king prawns, shell on sea salt
1 teaspoon candied orange
1 teaspoon chopped chives 100ml mascarpone (see recipe for lime-vanilla mascarpone or use shop-bought mascarpone)
Butterfly the prawns by splitting them down the middle on the underside. Season with salt then start to char grill them on a low heat on the bars of a barbecue shell-side down. You can also do this under a grill, shell-side down.
Add the candied orange and chopped chives to the mascarpone, bring to a gentle simmer and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Baste the prawns with this as they cook, cooking until the meat turns opaque, about 4 minutes. Turn the prawns over to flesh-side down and give them a quick flash, about 20 seconds, to give them a bit of char before pulling them off to rest. Baste with more mascarpone and serve.
