You can use lime in place of the oranges here if you prefer. For a bit more of a 'kick', serve with 1 tablespoon of your favourite hot chilli sauce.

    Place prawns, paprika, garlic and juice in a large bowl; mix to combine, season. Thread onto 20 bamboo skewers.

    Make corn salsa. Cook corn on a heated grill plate (or grill or barbecue) for 10 minutes, turning occasionally. When cool enough to handle, use a sharp knife to remove the kernels from the cob. Combine corn in a medium bowl with remaining ingredients. Season to taste.

    Lightly spray a heated grill plate (or barbecue or grill) with oil; cook prawns for 3 minutes or until just changed in colour.
