An unusual combination of avocado, red onion and cactus pear cools the spicy twang of chile-infused prawns. A great Saturday night kind of dinner.

Directions

Preheat the grill.

In a bowl, mix 1/4 cup olive oil with the Ancho chile powder, garlic, salt and pepper. Add prawns to the oil and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

To make the salsa, combine the Andy Boy cactus pears and avocado in a mixing bowl, and add onion, cilantro, green onions, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Skewer the prawns on three skewers and grill the prawns for 3 minutes each side. You can serve it over cilantro rice with the salsa on the side.
