Prawns are a great source of lean protein which is essential for building muscle.

Serving the prawns with another good source of protein, such as basmati rice, helps to maximise protein synthesis. Chilli provides anti-inflammatories which support the immune system.

Directions

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Cover with cling film and place into the fridge for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, place 5 prawns onto each of the skewers and cook in a hot sauté pan or on a chargrill. The prawns will take 1 minute on each side and will turn pink.
