Prawn & pineapple skewers on the beach

Spending all day on the beach can leave me feeling quite peckish, so I made these for a lunch treat to have at my beach basket. Besides prawn, I've added pineapple, which contains anti-inflammatory bromelain and vit C, and some of my favourite fresh herb coriander (potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium). I normally eat a mainly plant-based diet, but decided to try some seafood whilst here at the sea. Always be mindful when eating seafood to buy sustainably sourced and avoid farmed.
