For flavor this is a 5 for sure. I had 2 problems with the instructions (probably just me) I didn't understand if you cooked them in the shell or removed the shell when you deveined the prawn. Also I wasn't sure if you used only the zest from the lemon or the whole lemon - I opted for the whole lemon and the shell off the prawn - This is do again recipe for sure - we enjoyed them very much

My hubby just cooked this for valentines day and it was nice but I felt it didn't have much taste. Still a cheap way to cook prawns and we didn't add the salt or pepper. I also wanted to say thank you for giving us a base to go from. People that have the time to send in a recipe is a major vote from me. Thank you

Yum Kate! I cooked with U8 Tiger Prawns and added black pepper but no salt.
