    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Friendly on the waistline! Finger food or a main dish served with noodles/rice and vegetables, a simple but very tasty dish. If you can't get lemon grass or lime leaves, the best substitute I can think of is to use grated lime zest. Marinating time not included.

      This was a great, easy meal! I doubled the marinade and served it over brown rice, using the marinade as a sauce also.

      This was wonderful I loved using the fine gound Lemon grass (my previous lemon grass had wee sticks in it). the combination of these spices gave a slightly sweet but subtle flavor to the prawns it did not overpower the prawn flavor itself We enjoyed the recipe very much THANKS Pets'R'us
