  1. Heat the barbecue or preheat the oven to 210 °C or use a grill pan.
  2. Peel the prawns . Mix with 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl.
  3. Finely chop the garlic and 1/ 3 of the coriander leaves and add to the prawns. Halve cayenne pepper lengthwise, remove the seeds and finely slice the flesh. Add half of the cayenne pepper to the prawns. Season with salt to taste. Leave to marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  4. In the meanwhile, slice the mango into two halves along the stone. Score each half into squares without cutting through the skin. Turn out the halves with your thumb and slice off the cubes. Or use a mango slicer.
  5. Halve the cucumber lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a teaspoon. Slice the flesh into pieces. Slice the sweet pepper into cubes and finely chop the onion.
  6. Remove the crowns from the strawberries. Slice the strawberries in half. Finely slice the rest of the coriander.

Alternatively, heat a grill pan and grill for around 3 minutes. Serve the prawn skewers with the mango and coriander salsa and the extra lime cut into wedges.
