Rich, easy marinade that's quick to prepare with tasty results. I chose the Hoisin sauce & to broil them. The broiling worked just fine. I split the recipe in half, but still used a full 1 clove of garlic for the 16 prawns. I would not recommend skipping the use of the sesame oil. The sesame oil really helped to balance out the marinade flavors in the cooking. UPDATE: I reserved a few last night for lunch today to see how they would fair served cold. What a pleasant surprise -- I think these were meant to be served cold, Asian salad style!! Shrimp are hardier & tastier cold and these could handle the rich marinade much better today [good, but just a little too rich when hot last night I found]. I'll be making this again with the explicit purpose of serving them cold the next day. Increasing the rating from 4 stars to 5 stars when served nice & cold!

Fixed this yesterday at lunch. Had unexpected company and this was fast and easy. I did use my Forman Grill so my DH and his friend could visit. Made as directed only I added a little more garlic. Fabulous! Made with Ginger Jasmine Rice#379146 and Japanese Salad Dressing#158323 on a salad bed of iceburg lettece, radishes and of course onions. Very tasty meal.
