Spencer Gulf prawns with dill and buttermilk dressing
12 wooden skewers
12 large Spencer Gulf prawns, peeled, tails left on
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 bunch dill, 2 tbsp fronds reserved
finely grated zest and juice of a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely grated
Cover skewers in water and allow to soak for at least half an hour before threading on prawns, tail end first. Set aside. Place all buttermilk dressing ingredients into a small bowl and stir to combine. Preheat a barbecue or frying pan over very high heat. Drizzle olive oil over prawns then cook for 30 seconds each side or until golden brown and just cooked through. Serve prawns warm or cooled with buttermilk dressing, hazelnuts and extra dill fronds.
