Prawn Tandoori Skewers

Did you know that a tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven? The Tandoori marinade consists of yogurt and spices like coriander powder, chilli powder and garam masala. For today’s recipe, we’re switching up the traditional tandoori with prawns! They are one of the most healthy seafood options to include in your diet. High in protein and low in carbs, they are a source of good fats. They are rich in Omega fatty acids, minerals and are a great source of Vitamins A, D and E as well as B1, B2 and B3.
