Yum! Really quick to put together and the marinade and sesame coating were a great combination.

These are delicious! I couldn't get larger prawns, so I used 24 tiger prawns, with 6 on each skewer. My hubby really loved these, and even my 5 yo had a try because they smelled so good! Thanks for sharing, I will be making these again next time we have a BBQ!
