Recipe is completey my own!!
This year for Christmas it was a relaxed affiar. My partner and I went to Queanbeyan (near Canberra, ACT ) and spent the weekend with my mum. Lunch was down at Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra and we had a picnic. These prawns were the star of the day and were soooo yummy.

Makes: 4 servings
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 tbs soft brown sugar
    1 1/2 tsp five-spice powder
    Juice of 1 lime
    1 small red chilli, finely chopped
    1kg green prawns
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Salad leaves
Mango salsa
    1 large ripe mango, peeled, chopped
    1/2 red onion, finely chopped
    2 small chillies, seeds removed, finely chopped
    1 tbs chopped coriander
    1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
    Juice of 1 lime, or to taste
  1. Place the garlic, sugar, five-spice, lime juice, chilli and a little pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Add prawns and stir well until evenly coated. Stand while you make the salsa. 
  2. For the salsa, combine mango, onion, chilli, coriander, oil, lime juice and some salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside. 
  3. Preheat a barbecue or chargrill pan on medium-high heat. Cook prawns, in batches if necessary, for 2 minutes, turning, until tender and charred all over. Transfer to a bowl and squeeze over the lemon. 
  4. Arrange salad leaves and prawns on plates, then top with the mango salsa.
