Chilli King Prawns (Shrimp) Skewers With Pistachio Coriander Rub

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jewelies

Australian Women's Weekly recipe. You will need 8 skewers and don't forget to soak your skewers if you use bamboo skewers, so they don't burn.

Absolutely delicious. I basted the shrimp with some of the paste while cooking, after I marinaded them for 30 minutes first-had to wait for rice to cook :) 2 tips for ppl following, do what the recipe says, just chop the pepper - the bite is important and im glad i didnt double guess myself by deseeding it. Next time (and there will be a next time) I am going to add 1 tbs of chopped lemongrass to the paste as well. I think it will marry the heat to the nuts beautifully. terrific dish.
