This prawn kebab recipe from Frances Atkins features an inspired pairing in the form of pea brûlée. This is a great prawn starter, but the pea brûlée is such a novel idea, you might want to make it on its own and pair it with a piece of beautifully cooked fish.

For the brûlée, bring the cream to the boil and then remove from the heat. Combine in a blender with the peas and sugar and blend until smooth. Add the egg yolks and blend again until thoroughly combined
60g of shelled peas
140ml of cream
2 egg yolks
1 tbsp of sugar
Preheat the oven to 125˚C/gas mark 1.5. Lightly butter 4 ramekins, and evenly distribute the brûlée mix between them. Place in a bain-marie and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until just set. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the water
In a blender, combine the pieces of chicken breast, egg white and a pinch of salt and pepper and blitz until smooth. Remove from the blender and place in a bowl with the white bread and prawns. Add the chives and stir until fully combined
4 king prawns
85g of chicken breast
15g of egg white
30g of white bread
1 tsp chives
Divide the prawn mixture into 4 and distribute each portion onto a piece of cling film. Cut 2 skewers in half and place each mini skewer down the middle of the mix. Fold over the cling film and roll into a kebab shape
Sprinkle the pea brûlées with the mint and sugar, caramelise with a blow torch or alternatively place under a hot grill until the sugar melts
1 sprig of fresh mint
Heat a little butter in a pan over a medium heat, remove the cling film and gently fry the kebabs until lightly golden all over. Serve with the pea brûlées and a handful of rocket
