Garlic prawn and chicken kebabs

Sundays are one of my favourite food days. You have time to plan and spend in the kitchen. Shane and I generally invite family over and have a ‘braai’, or plan something special to eat together that evening.

I’ve been lucky enough to see the different ways families enjoy making Sunday special. Some enjoy having the traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings, and others cook up many different dishes and whoever visits throughout the day gets to help themselves to the meals made. In Durban, the weather makes it pretty difficult to resist having a mellow afternoon with a small group of people in front of the ‘braai’, flame grilling your choice meat.

Shane specially made a garlic prawn and chicken kebab for us, and boy oh boy, I couldn’t pass the chance to share it with you.
