500 g raw prawns (you’ll want 16 in total), peeled and deveined, tails left on
2-3 x chorizo, cut into 1 cm thick rounds
16 small wooden skewers, soaked in water for 10 mins to avoid burning
2 corn cobs, husk removed
1 bunch radish, bulbs sliced into wedges
1 lemon, sliced into wedges, to serve
Creamy Paprika Dipping Sauce
½ cup Paul Newman’s Own Caesar Dressing
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 lemon, zested
½ teaspoon flaky sea salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Thread one prawn and one slice of chorizo onto each bamboo skewer. Drizzle a little olive oil over each of them.
If cooking on the BBQ: Heat the BBQ to high and add in the whole corn cobs and the Prawn + Chorizo skewers. Cook, turning the corn every few minutes until charred all over, and turning the skewers after 1-2 minutes until the prawns are cooked through and the chorizo is charred.
If cooking in the kitchen: Preheat your oven grill to high. Drizzle the corn cobs with a little olive oil and place them on a baking rack in the top half of the oven. Cook for 10 minutes, turning every couple of minutes, until the corn is charred. Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a little olive oil to the pan and cook the skewers in batches for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked through.
Carefully take the charred corn, hold one end with tongs and then using a sharp knife, slice the corn into 3 cm-thick rounds.
To make the Creamy Paprika Dipping Sauce, add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well to combine.
Serve the Prawn + Chorizo Skewers on a large platter with the Creamy Paprika Dipping Sauce. Scattered around the BBQ’d corn and radish wedges. Serve lemon wedges on the side so people can squeeze over if they like.
