  • handful of parsley, roughly chopped
For the Creole butter
  • 125g salted butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 50g sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
For the jambalaya rice
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

  • 250g long grain rice
  • 400ml chicken stock* (made using ½ stock pot or cube)

Step by step

Get ahead
You can prepare the Creole butter at least a couple of hours ahead of time; re-melt if necessary before using to baste the prawns on the barbecue.
  1. To make the rice, heat the oil in a large, lidded pan and fry the onion, celery and peppers for 6-8 minutes, until soft. Add the herbs, spices and sausage and cook for a further few minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes, rice and stock. Bring to a low simmer, then cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until all of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is cooked. Keep warm while you cook the kebabs.
  2. Heat the barbecue for direct cooking (coals spread out evenly). Discard the heads from the prawns and thread the remainder onto 4 metal kebab skewers.
  3. To make the Creole butter, melt one third of the butter in a small pan and fry the garlic on a low heat for 2 minutes, without letting it colour. Add all the spices, herbs and sundried tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes, then add the remaining butter and let it melt.
  4. When you’re ready to cook the kebabs, brush the prawns all over with some of the Creole butter and barbecue for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with more butter as they cook. Transfer the cooked kebabs to a platter and squeeze over the lemon juice. Pour over the remaining butter sauceand garnish with parsley and lemon wedges. Serve with the rice.

    *Use gluten-free stock and check your smoked sausage is gluten-free, if required.
