Yummo! The lemon myrtle gave the aioli a very distictive taste that went great with the grilled prawns. The recipe gives a fairly generous amount of aioli so unless you were using absolutely huge prawns it's about the right amount for 8 skewers with 3 or 4 prawns per skewer. I used 4 Tiger Prawns per skewer that looked like about U8 size.
