Method

  1. In a bowl, toss the red pepper pieces and prawns with the chipotle chilli paste, 2 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp lemon juice. Season well.
  2. Thread onto 8 skewers, dividing the ingredients evenly. If cooking on a barbecue, make sure the coals are white-hot with no trace of flame. Alternatively, set a griddle or frying pan over a high heat until smoking. Lay the skewers directly on the barbecue bars, or in the hot pan, in a single layer. Cook for 3-4 mins in total, turning every 45 secs-1 min, until well marked.
  3. Toss the radishes, cucumber and lettuce with the remaining olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl. Carefully remove the skewers and divide the prawn and peppers between the tortillas with the radish salad and a spoonful of soured cream. Wrap up the tortillas to serve.
