Prawn Skewers Recipe

If you love sea food, chances are high that you will love prawns too. Prawns have a distinct taste and fabulous source of protein. Though I am a vegetarian, I love seeing my partner enjoy his food, and he loves his non-veg. This makes me give all sort of suggestion to my partner to try out various non-vegetarian recipes. It seems his Prawn capsicum recipe was hit between his friends and hence I suggested this time that he tries out prawn skewers. This recipe does not require oven, but if you wish you can use oven (check recipe notes at the bottom of this recipe).

This prawn skewers recipe is a fusion of few spices like Garlic, Kasuri Methi and Garam Masala, along with tenderiser like Lemon juice.
