These pescetarian friendly skewers will transport your tastebuds straight to the tropics - juicy nectarines marinated in a basil and lime juice, paired with sweet, grilled paprika prawns. Impress your guests at your next barbecue blowout with this smoky gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free dish.

Put the prawns in a bowl with the oil, garlic salt, paprika and sugar. Mix well and then thread onto metal skewers, or wooden ones that have been soaked in water for 15 minutes. Season with pepper.

Using a separate bowl, mix the nectarines with the onion, basil and lime juice.

Place a griddle pan on a medium heat. Sear the prawns for 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn pink and are cooked through.

If cooking on a barbecue place the prawn skewers on the barbecue on a medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes; turning every 30 seconds, or until they turn pink and are cooked through. Serve the prawns with the salsa and the remaining lime half.
