24 large prawns, peeled and deveined
1 tbsp olive oil
2 limes, zested and juiced
2 green chile peppers, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 (2 inch) piece fresh ginger root, chopped
1/2 medium onion, coarsely chopped
Place the prawns and lime zest in a large zip lock bag. In a food processor, add the olive oil, lime juice, chile pepper, garlic, ginger, and onion. Process until smooth. Pour marinade in the bag of prawns, massage to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Thread prawns onto skewers, piercing each first through the tail, and then the head. Cook prawns for 5 minutes, turning once, or until opaque.
