Ingredients:

- 12 tiger prawns, cooked and peeled
– Juice of ½ lime
– Pinch of paprika
– Pinch of Cajun seasoning
– ¼ cucumber, deseeded and chopped
– 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

These are so quick and easy it’s very hard not to eat them as you work, but that wouldn’t do at all. Simply pop the king prawns into a bowl, then take half a lime and squeeze it straight over the prawns and when you’ve got all the juice out give them a little stir. Now add to that marinade by popping in a pinch of paprika and a pinch of Cajun seasoning and stir well.

Let all those flavours mingle and in the mean time, cut up a cucumber to thread onto the sticks, scooping the seeds from the centre of the cucumber, then chop the cherry tomatoes in half. To assemble, take a cocktail stick, thread a piece of de-seeded cucumber on, next thread a prawn into the middle. Lastly, a quarter of cherry tomato.
