Prawns (Shrimp) on the Barbie Aussie Style

Top Review by Bergy

Five Star all the way, Simple easy & quick - I marinated the prawns for 3 hours in the fridge in the oil and spices ( I added a tbsp of fresh lemon Juice). Cooked them for about 3 minutes, they had just turned pink on both sides (it may take a minute longer for larger prawns). They literally exploded when you bit into them, they were so succulent Thanks for a keeper 21 Feb 10 Made again and enjoyed just as much
