These Chili Lime Prawns with Avocado Feta Salsa make for a wonderfully fresh and light dinner. Tender, juicy grilled prawns, perfectly seasoned and marinated, paired with a cooling summer salsa made with fresh avocado, tomato, feta, capers, garlic, red onion, artichoke hearts and fresh citrus. Best of all, this dish can be made in less than 30 minutes.
Step by Step Instructions
STEP 1: In a large bowl, combine the prawns, garlic, soy sauce, olive oil, chili powder, lime juice and lime zest. Toss to mix. Allow to marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour, up to 6 hours.
STEP 2: Skewer the marinated prawns. There should be a total of 8 skewers, with 5 to 6 prawns on each one.
STEP 3: Grill the prawns over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side. You will know when they are done when they turn pink.
STEP 4: In a large bowl, combine the avocado, tomato, garlic, artichoke hearts, capers, feta cheese, red onion, olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Gently toss to mix. Refrigerate 1 hour. Divide the avocado feta salsa between 4 plates and top each one with 2 prawn skewers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! You can use pre-cooked prawns. Just prepare them the same way, but only leave them on the grill for as long as needed to heat them all the way through.
Yes! However, if you make the salsa ahead of time, I recommend adding in the avocado right before serving.
If you do not have a grill or a grill pan, you can marinate the prawns and then sauté them in a skillet.
