Really lovely, but next time I would marinate the prawns before putting them on the skewers, maybe I used the wrong dish to marinate them in, but as we put them into a already packed fridge, I think some of the prawns may have missed out.

I made this with sweet chilli and served with a crunchy salad as a supper. Quick and easy, but I didn't really enjoy them

Very easy to make and tasted lovely. Served with rice and salad. I also made some halloumi and tomato skewers for a veggie, but these didn't do so well. The best thing to do with these I think is to grill first and then use the sauce as a dip.

Nice and quick and easy to make, my friends really enjoyed them. I used sweet chilli as couldn't find the other sauce.
