For the prawns

Season the shrimp with salt and olive oil, then coat generously with the kadaif. Cook for 1 minute on each side in a hot pan with cooking oil. Once browned, set aside on paper towels and season.
For the sauce
Peel the mango and pineapple, then cut into small 1 cm cubes. Peel the red onion and finely chop. Peel and grate the ginger. In a hot pan, caramelize the honey slightly then add the chopped onion with a pinch of salt. Cook, covered, for 5 min in 5 ml of water. Then add the pineapple, mango, Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes and grated ginger and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. At the end of cooking, add the tomato vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
For serving
Prepare the chutney in a small sauce dish and carefully place 3 kadaif shrimp on top.
Chef's Tip
To make handling the shrimp easier and to keep them warm longer, prepare 3-shrimp wooden skewers.
