  • bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  • 1 cup plain Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 cup mint leaves loosely packed, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice macadamia dukkah*
  • 1 kg green prawns peeled, tails intact, de-veined
  • macadamia oil for brushing
  • lemon wedges to serve


  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the yoghurt, mint leaves and lemon juice and set aside. Pour the macadamia dukkah onto a large plate, reserving 2 tablespoons.
  • Thread the prawns, tail end first, onto the bamboo skewers. Roll each prawn in the macadamia dukkah*, place in a single layer on a large tray and lightly brush both sides with macadamia oil.
  • Preheat a chargrill on a medium heat. Cook the prawns on the grill, turning constantly to prevent burning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until the prawns change to a deeper orange colour.
  • Remove from the heat, place on a serving platter and sprinkle with the reserved macadamia dukkah. Serve with the minty lemon yoghurt and lemon wedges.
