10 stars! This came out excellant. For us I also chose to add scallops to our. I put all of this together the night before, came home grilled this in no time. I would not change a thing in this recipe.
These were fantastic! I had some frozen green prawns that were lovely and meaty, but didn't have a lot of flavour to them, so I wanted something to give them some 'zip'. This did the trick! I marinaded for 2 hours, then cooked them briefly on other side in the frypan, before tipping the remaining marinade over the top and letting it bubble and thicken for a few minutes to make a sauce. Served over rice, it made a wonderful meal and the sauce was 'to die for'! (BTW I didn't have barbecue sauce on hand so substituted ketchup with a dash or two of worcestershire sauce). Thanks again Jewelies. We love your recipes!
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this! I have made this a number of times, and it is delicious! I don't like it over rice or pasta - the sauce to me is just not enough or thick enough for over just simple pasta, but I love it by itself. Great flavor!
