Chilli Sauce:

Boil water in a pot and pour over chillies, leaving for an hour. Place chillies and 150 ml of chilli water into a blender and blend until smooth. Add all other ingredients and blend.

Smashed Avocado Salad:

Chop avocado into small cubes, finely chop red onion, chilli and tomato, mix all together in a bowl with 1/2 of lime juice. Mix with spinach and place on plates.

Prawns:

Peel prawns and slice 2 mm deep along the length of the prawn, with a small knife take out the vein. Wash prawns under salted cold water and pat dry.

Heat the Weber or BBQ until hot. Season prawns with light olive oil and sea salt, cook on both sides for 3-5 minutes until crispy orange. Brush prawns with sauce and cook again until golden. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle chives over prawns.

Place prawns on a plate, resting on the guacamole and salad, dressed with vinaigrette and lime wedges.
