Summer on a Stick

Nothing says Australian summer holiday quite like a mango and freshly peeled prawns. Tasked with supplying prawns for a New Year's Eve party on a boat, but not wanting to deal with the mess, I came up with this superbly simple recipe that tastes like summer on a stick. 


  • 2-3 cooked prawns per person, peeled, deveined and butterflied
  • ¼ mango per person, peeled, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 6 mint leaves per person
  • 4-6 toothpicks per person


  • Doddles Creek chilli, lime & coriander mayonnaise


Thread a prawn, mango and a mint leaf onto a toothpick. Place on a tray. Throw a small bowl in the middle with around a teaspoon of mayo per person to dip. Done, you excellent, resourceful human!
