Keralan Seafood Tikka

Seafood lovers will adore this lightly spiced coconut dish served with an aromatic potato salad with a hint of mint, to keep you cool.


1. In a bowl mix the Patak’s Korma Paste with the yoghurt, coconut, garlic, black pepper and dill. Add the scallops, prawns and monkfish to the marinade.

2. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. On a skewer, thread a piece of the diced onion, then a scallop, followed by a prawn, then a prune, a piece of monkfish and then another prawn. Finish with a prune, scallop and monkfish, before adding a piece of onion.

3. Repeat this for the other skewers. Place on the barbecue or under a hot grill for six minutes, turning occasionally.
