With flavours of garlic and lime, these prawns are wrapped in prosciutto, then cooked on the barbecue and paired with a vibrant mango, lime and chilli salsa. Special but easy to to make, and most importantly, delicious - this dish really is the perfect way to kick off a Christmas lunch or dinner.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Prawns with Mango Salsa


Serves 4-6



  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp finely chopped red chilli
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime, plus extra lime wedges to serve
  • 20 large prawns, peeled with tail intact
  • 10 slices prosciutto
  • Olive oil, for frying

For the mango salsa:

  • 1 mango, peeled and finely diced
  • ½ small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 large red chilli, chopped
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped



  1. Combine the avocado oil, chilli, garlic and lime zest and juice in a bowl. Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper, then add prawns and toss to coat.
  2. Slice the prosciutto in half, lengthwise. Wrap one piece of prosciutto around each prawn, leaving the tail exposed. Cover and chill until ready to cook.
  3. To prepare the mango salsa, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir gently to combine.
  4. Heat a barbecue or grill plate over medium heat. Oil the prawns lightly and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning frequently, until the prawns are cooked through. Serve the prawns with the mango salsa.
