  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 medium shrimp, head and tail in tact and the shell from the body removed

  • 2 cups fresh sweet corn kernels (from 2 medium-size ears), blanched

Remove from the bag and bring to room temperature. Preheat the grill. Place skewers on the grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the prawns turn bright pink and their tails curl in. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the corn, basil, onion, tomatoes, and bell pepper. Add the remaining dressing and toss to mix. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Using 3 to 6 spears of asparagus, form a triangle in the center of each serving plate. Spoon the corn and tomato mixture in the center of each plate. Lay 2 to 3 skewers on top of the salad.
