A Caribbean recipe. I haven't tried these but they sounded great. Shrimp are called prawns in Australia. Don't forget to soak your skewers. Prep time does not include time to marinate.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup lime juice
  • 13 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons jamaican jerk spice
  • 3 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 kg large green prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour


  1. Stir together the lime juice, honey, soy sauce, and oil in a large bowl. Season with jerk seasoning, hot pepper sauce, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add the prawns and toss well to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for one hour to marinate.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  4. Remove skewers from the water, pat dry, and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Skewer the shrimp. Grill the shrimp on the grill on both sides until pink and opaque, about 5 minutes per side.

Definately 5 star recipe. Lovely delicate flavor - I cut back on the honey a bit. Marinated the prawns for apprx 2 hours. It was pouring rain so I had to do them in the oven - 400 for apprx 10 minutes. Perfect Thanks Jewelies for posting

Easy and delicious. I found key limes on sale at the market (a rare treat to find key limes) and it takes 10 key limes to make 1/3 cup of lime juice if that helps anyone. This is a great all in one recipe that delights all of the taste buds... salty, sweet, sour, etc. My family thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. Thanks, Jewelies!
