  • 2 tablespoons Rowse Orange Blossom honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, grated rind and juice
  • 1 mild red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped coriander, optional

To serve

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Blossom honey

  • 150g/5oz mixed salad leaves
  • 200g/7oz romaine lettuce heart, torn into pieces

1. To make the marinade, mix the honey, oil, grated lime rind and juice, chilli and garlic together in a shallow bowl. Add the coriander, salt and pepper, mix together then add the prawns and toss together. Cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

2. Lift the prawns out of the marinade and thread on to metal or soaked wooden skewers. Cook on a medium hot barbecue or under a preheated grill for 5-7 minutes turning the prawns once or twice and brushing with the marinade until the prawns are bright pink all over and cooked through.

3. Mix the remaining lime juice, honey and soy sauce together in a bowl, add the salad and toss together. Spoon on to four plates. Slide the prawns off their skewers on to the salad and serve immediately.

Tips: An extra special dish for the barbecue; these prawns are cooked in minutes and taste delicious marinaded with honey, chilli and garlic then tossed with a soy dressed salad.
