Method

  1. To make the chutney heat the oil in a pan and sauté the garlic and ginger for 1 minute.  Add the remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to the boil. 
  2. Simmer for 30 minutes until the mixture is thick and sticky.  Stir it occasionally to prevent it burning.  Allow to cool
  3. Place the prawns in a shallow tray. Mix together the oil, garlic, chilli and lime zest and juice and season. Pour over the prawns and leave to marinate for 15 minutes. Remove from the marinade and thread 3 on each skewer.
  4. Preheat the grill.
  5. Place the skewers on a baking tray and drizzle over the remaining marinade. Grill for 2-3 minutes or until the prawns just turn pink. Serve the skewers with the tomato chutney
