Sumac Prawn and Watermelon Salad

Sumac Prawn and Watermelon Salad

BBQ doesn’t have to be burgers !!

This salad makes a very chi chi summer BBQ starter or even main course salad dish. Prawns are so easy to cook on the BBQ, taking only three minutes a side. Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice available in Asian markets and gives a wonderful lemony flavour to the prawns. I only buy my seafood from my fishmonger, as the quality and value is superb. Alternatively, you can find fantastic prawns in the freezer section in most Asian markets.

 Serves 4

12 raw tiger prawns, shelled and deveined

1tbls olive oil

2tsp sumac

1kg watermelon, peeled and cubed

½ small onion, very finely sliced

10 pitted black olives, halved

150g feta cheese, crumbled

150g baby spinach leaves

1tbls olive oil

1tbls lemon juice

2tbls chopped fresh mint


  • Mix the olive oil and sumac together and toss through the prawns. Cover and marinade for 20 minutes.
  • Griddle the prawns on a griddle pan or BBQ and cook for 3 minutes each side until pink, firm and curled up.
  • Finely slice the red onion and mix with the tablespoon of olive oil and lemon juice. Leave this to ‘pickle’ for 5 minutes.
  • Toss together the baby spinach, watermelon, feta, olives and the marinated red onion.
  • Divide the salad amongst four plates and place the prawns on top, drizzle over extra lemon, olive oil and fresh mint.
  • Alternatively, serve the salad and prawns on skewers or in individual baby cos lettuce leaves.
