  1. Thread a prawn onto a wood or metal skewer, then a piece each of chorizo, pepper and lemon. Thread on a bay leaf then repeat, using 3 prawns on each skewer and finishing with a bay leaf. 
  2. Brush the skewers with a little oil. Cook on a ribbed grill pan for about 5 mins, turning every few minutes until the prawns are pink and cooked through, and the pepper and chorizo are golden and a little charred at the edges. 
  3. Whizz the coriander, lemon juice and remaining oil until smooth, then season. Drizzle over the cooked prawn skewers. Serve immediately. 

Don’t forget, If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before use to stop them burning.
