Clean and shell the prawns but keep the last part of the shell that is attached to the tail in order to give the prawns a better shape. Attach the prawns to the skewers one by one, by passing them first through the tail and then through the head. On a plate sprinkle the skewers with sea salt and ground pepper. Oil the kebabs and put them on a flat, very hot frying pan (or on a griddle plate). Now the trick is to cook for just the right length of time. Just a minute and a half on each side should be fine !!! Finish cooking, and serve your delicious prawn kebabs on a bed of hot, moist polenta.

Do you want to really enjoy the flavour of your prawn kebabs? Then choose a good white wine, like a Catarratto or even a top notch prosecco.
Do you know how to recognize a properly fresh prawn? When you buy them, take care that there are no black spots on the head or abdomen!
