16 raw tiger or king prawns
16 stems of rosemary (or use small skewers or toothpicks)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Zucchini, peeled into strips with a vegetable peeler

1. Peel prawns, leaving tails intact and remove veins (the dark thread running down the back of the prawn). Remove the leaves from the base of the stems of rosemary and lightly peel the stalks so that they form clean, smooth skewers.

2. Heat a pan with a little water and add the lemon juice. Add prawns to the pan and poach at a gentle simmer for about 2 minutes or until they turn pinky-orange. Remove to cool.

3. Wrap a ribbon of zucchini around the middle of each prawn and secure with a rosemary skewer. Serve with sun-dried tomato dipping sauce.
