Preparation steps

1.

Crush the garlic into the oil and add sumac, chili and ground black pepper. Add the prawns and mix them thoroughly. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

2.
For the salsa, boil the corn cobs in salted water for approx. 20 minutes so that they retain a slight bite. Drain and quench in cold water, then cut the corn from the cobs using a sharp knife.
3.

Cut the avocados into 1" dice and mix immediately with the lime juice.

4.
Mix together all the salsa ingredients and season to taste with salt and ground white pepper.
5.
Drain the prawns a little, season with salt and grill on the hot barbecue for 2-3 minutes on each side. Use an aluminium tray if necessary. Serve the hot prawns immediately, with the salsa.
