Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 15 minutes + 2 hours, to marinade


  • 15ml (1 tbsp) sesame oil + extra, to brush
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) fresh basil leaves, finely chopped + extra, to garnish
  • 5ml (1 tsp) soya sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, combine the sesame oil, lemon zest, basil, soya and seasoning. Add the prawns, cover and refrigerate to marinate, 2 hours.


Preheat the grill or braai.


Thread the marinated prawns and Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit chunks onto skewers. Brush the Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit with a little extra oil.


Place the kebabs on the grill or braai and cook until the prawns are just cooked through, 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Garnish with fresh basil and coriander. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
