Prawn skewers with coriander pesto and yogurt dip in kamado

Cooking prawns on the grill in the kamado Big Green Egg is not only easy, it is a guarantee that the taste will be delicious. For this recipe, we recommend that you first mix the prawns with the pesto to give them a surprising flavor, which you will also find in the yogurt dip. We opted for a coriander based pesto instead of the classic basil one. You can make the pesto well in advance and even skewer the prawns before covering them with aluminum foil and storing them in the fridge. Mix the leftover pesto with the yogurt in a nice bowl. Don’t forget to take the yogurt out of the fridge in advance to bring it to room temperature.
