  • Preheat a chargrill or barbecue to high.
  • To make the marinade, combine the garlic, chilli, ginger, paprika, oregano and oil, then season.
  • To make skewers, thread 1 lime wedge, 1 prawn, 1 piece of squid and 1 piece of swordfish onto a skewer, then repeat. Repeat with remaining skewers, then coat in the marinade.
  • Brush corn with oil and chargrill, turning, for 10 minutes, until blistered and tender.
  • Set aside. Brush chargrill with oil and cook skewers, in batches, for 2-3 minutes each side until cooked through.
