Cajun Prawns

This is such an easy recipe and can be added to skewers, served at a BBQ, or with a selection of grilled meats. They would be great with a dip too. I will place a recipe for a cajun style rice below, and they are lovely with this and some corn-on-the-cob smothered with butter.

2 tsp cajun spice
juice from 1 small lime (or 2 tbsp lemon juice)
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 tbsp oil
220g pack large prawns
Place the spice in a small bowl, add the lime juice and mix well, add the honey and blend with the liquid. - Heat the oil in a pan, add the spice mix, then straight away add the prawns. - Cook on a medium-low heat. - The sauce will thicken and caramalise, you need to wait till the sauce is reduced, the prawns are coated and becoming sticky with the thick spice mix (this will take 4 or 5 minutes). - Be sure to scrape the sticky spice from the pan and add it to the plate. - Serve as above.
