Tandoori Prawns with Pineapple Salsa

This is a wonderful summery dish with delicious coastal Indian flavours and bursts of fruity goodness form the pineapple salsa. The prawns are delicious as they are and can be part of a BBQ platter, or served in a salad, or even just with some lemon juice. Here, they are paired with a fruity pineapple salsa, but I have also written a delicious, refreshing herby dressing to drizzle over them. At a BBQ, we love to serve them with our fiery maple glazed chicken, our grilled paneer and vegetable skewers, naan or pitta and lots of salad and vegetable sides.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. The Spice Tailor Malabar Paste
  • 180g large raw king prawns, shelled and deveined
  • 5 tbsp. thick coconut yoghurt (some brands are thicker than others, we like the thick creamy ones like Coconut Collaborative)

For the salsa

  • 120g fresh pineapple, small dice
  • 2 tbsp. red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. red chili (or Indian green chili), seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 1 rounded tbsp. fresh chopped coriander

For the Green Goddess style dressing (optional)

  • 10g fresh mint leaves, washed
  • 30g fresh coriander, leaves and stalks, washed
  • 2 good tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 rounded tbsp. crème fraiche or Greek yoghurt (ideally full fat)
  • ½-3/4 tbsp. white wine or cider vinegar

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix the paste and yoghurt.
  2. Add the prawns and marinate for a few minutes while you make the salsa.
  3. Mix the ingredients for the salsa.
  4. If you are making it, blitz together the ingredient for the dressing with a blender.
  5. Grill the prawns on a preheated griddle pan, pressing down to char for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cooked, depending how big the prawns are. You can also cook them in a foil tray on the BBQ for extra smoky flavour.
