- In a shallow glass or ceramic dish, combine peanut oil, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, half of the chilli and the fish sauce and 3 teaspoons of the ginger. Add prawns and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to marinate.
- Preheat barbecue or chargrill pan to medium-high. Thread 3 prawns onto each skewer. Grill the skewers for 2 minutes each side, or until prawns have changed colour and are cooked through.
- Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl combine carrot, capsicum, snow peas, bok choy, mint and mango. In a small bowl, whisk remaining lime juice, fish sauce, chilli, ginger and sugar together. Add dressing to salad and gently toss.
- To serve, divide prawn skewers among 8 plates and serve with salad and lime wedges.
