For the prawn marinade

4 limes, juiced
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 tbsp gold tequilla
1 tbsp orange flavoured liqueur, such as Triple Sec
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
Pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 (U-15) prawns and 6 very large sea scallops, cut in 1/2 or 12 smaller sea scallops
12 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
Pink salt, for garnish

For the salsa

40g pomegranate seeds
1 medium mango, peeled and flesh diced
1 tomato, seeded and diced
2 spring onions, green part only, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp diced mild onion
10 mint leaves, chopped
2 limes, juiced
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish
1 tbsp mirin
Pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Add the lime juice, oil, tequila, orange liqueur, coriander leaves and pepper to a large bowl to make a marinade and stir to combine. Add the prawns and scallops and set the bowl aside.

2) Add all the salsa ingredients to a serving bowl and mix well.

3) Preheat the griddle to medium. Remove the prawns and scallops from the marinade. Put a scallop in the U (curved part) of the prawn and skewer, first through the scallop and then through the prawn.

4) Arrange the skewers on the hot griddle and cook approximately 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on 1 side, then turn and griddle for 2 1/2 minutes on the other side.

5) When done, remove the skewers from the grill to a serving dish. Drizzle with some extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with pink salt. Serve with the salsa and enjoy!
