Grilled Prawn and Avocado Kebabs

Don’t let the colours fool you; these kebabs pack quite a punch! The avocado makes these seafood kebabs filling and even more nutritious!

Servings: 5
Here’s what you need…
Kebabs:
1 lb. jumbo prawns
1-½ large, semi-ripe avocados
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red onion
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tsp cayenne
salt and pepper to taste

Marinade:
½ tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 large lime
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
½ tsp ginger paste
1-½ tsp garlic paste
cilantro, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 15 minutes.
3. Chop veggies and avocado into large pieces for the kebab.
4. Peel prawns (leave the tails) and season.
5. Assemble the kebabs. Feel free to make the recipe your own and toss in your favourite seasonal vegetables. Opt for more fibrous vegetables, as they are more filling and will likely hold well on a kebab stick under intense heat.
6. Spray your grilling rack with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray if you are using an electric grill. Place the kebabs on the grill and cook for about 8-10 minutes, then flip and cook for another 8-10 minutes.
7. In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade. When the kebabs have finished grilling, brush them with the optional marinade and serve immediately.
