Chilli Prawn and Pineapple Salad
Don’t you love those recipes that just JUMP out at you and scream I AM A GREAT IDEA! EAT ME! Well this one did just that as I was wandering aimlessly around Tescos. I recently did a giant supermarket order online and forgot a few essentials, but by the time I got into Tescos I’d completely forgotten what it was I had forgotten the first time round!
I definitely have “revision brain” if it is not about Corporate Insolvency, Trusts Law or Child Law…I won’t remember a thing!
So as I wandered down the fish isle on the hunt for some prawns…I’m not entirely sure why…this recipe came to me, as if in a dream…or something less dramatic haha!
It’s a really vibrant, fresh summer salad that leaves your taste-buds tingling! Don’t be scared by the combination of chilli, prawn and pineapple, I guarantee once you try them all together, you will fall in love!
🔪 Step-by-step instructions
- Homemade Cajun seasoning mix is very easy to make. See How to Make Cajun Seasoning Mix. This combination of Cajun spices is my favourite! Mix a batch, use some of it for this recipe and have it ready for your next Cajun meal! In a hurry? Use store-bought Cajun seasoning, often available in the spice section.
- First, if you will be using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent flare-ups on the grill. Use short skewers for appetizers and longer ones if you're using these skewers as a main dish.
- Next, in a small bowl, make a marinade by combining the Cajun seasoning mix with olive oil or butter.
- Remove the shells from the prawns (if they haven't already been removed) but leave the tails intact. They add extra flavour.
- Toss the prawns with the marinade and let them stand in the refrigerator.
- Meanwhile, prepare the pineapple chunks. If you're not familiar with the best way to cut a pineapple, see How to cut a pineapple.
- Next, thread the marinated prawns and the pineapple chunks on the skewers. For appetizers, use a small skewer with a piece of pineapple between two prawns. If using large skewers, alternate two prawns with one pineapple chunk and repeat.
- Grill on an oiled grate or grilling stone or an indoor grill pan over high heat. Prawns or shrimp only take a few minutes to cook. Grill for 3 minutes on one side, then flip and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side or until shrimp are no longer translucent. Overcooking results in tough rubbery prawns! Remove the shrimp kabobs from the heat to a platter and sprinkle with finely chopped fresh oregano.

I LOVE THIS SALAD. There, I said it and loudly. It is a great BBQ, poolside, beachside crowd pleaser. SO easy that it barely constitutes cooking, more of a serving suggestion really and how good is the Varoma for prawns? (Very good, that’s how good!)
This recipe appears in my first cookbook, For Food’s Sake, my passion project, the one I still love and use to this day. It is like a first child, you love the others, but the first one brings special memories. go get it if you don’t have it already. It really was the first Thermomix cookbook of it’s kind, with great recipes and beautiful pics. (If I say so myself, and there I go again, I said it!!)

In any country with a coastline, you’re bound to find a whole host of prawn recipes central to its cuisine. It’s no surprise, really – these sweet, juicy morsels are delicious, healthy and beautiful to look at, requiring very little (if any) cooking. Italy is no different – prawns of all shapes and sizes (including incredible red prawns) feature heavily in the different regional dishes of the country, pairing them with other local ingredients to great effect. Our collection of Italian prawn recipes means you can bring these flavours into your own kitchen.
Prawns and pasta are a no-brainer – Ilario Vinciguerra’s Linguine with broccoli rabe and Sicilian red prawns and Daniele Usai’s Spaghettone with red prawns and wild fennel are fine examples. Keep things simple with a bowl of Gamberi alla busara or go all-out with Andrea Sarri’s incredible Prawns with foie gras, melon gazpacho and dehydrated capers. And if you’ve managed to get some particularly fresh prawns, try them raw in Mauro Uliassi’s Red prawns with lemon water and pineapple sage flowers.
Remember when buying prawns that fresh is always best, but frozen is fine too. If you’re buying them shell-on, take a look at our video on how to peel prawns here.
