Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Chop the chicken and vegetables for the kebabs into large bite sized pieces (leave the prawns whole if you're using them instead of chicken). Mix together all of the ingredients for the cajun spice and then use this to coat all the kebab vegetables and prawns or chicken. Thread onto skewers in any order you like. Bake the kebabs in the oven for 12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, for the quinoa salad, cook your quinoa in a small pan (1 part quinoa to 2 parts cold water with a little salt) bring to the boil and simmer for around 10 minutes. Drain and mix with the other salad ingredients.
