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
