Margarita Prawns

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Normaone

Depending on the situation, these prawns could be a snack, appetizer or main dish. This is a summer favorite and very easy to prepare. Prep time does not reflect marinating time or standing time.

YUM!! YUM!! such flavour!! Wonderful. I just did 16 prawns but made the full marinade. The prawns were partially cooked by the marinade, kind of like a ceviche, finished on the grill they were sooo delicious, I did double the hot pepper sauce so they had a lovely tingle on the palate. I will be making these again, can't wait for prawns to be on special again!! Thanks for posting.
