For flavor this is a 5 for sure. I had 2 problems with the instructions (probably just me) I didn't understand if you cooked them in the shell or removed the shell when you deveined the prawn. Also I wasn't sure if you used only the zest from the lemon or the whole lemon - I opted for the whole lemon and the shell off the prawn - This is do again recipe for sure - we enjoyed them very much
My hubby just cooked this for valentines day and it was nice but I felt it didn't have much taste. Still a cheap way to cook prawns and we didn't add the salt or pepper. I also wanted to say thank you for giving us a base to go from. People that have the time to send in a recipe is a major vote from me. Thank you

I live in Australia, in the Blue Mountains (a national park the size of Belgium) and I really enjoy all things to do with food (especially the eating part). I used to work in theatre and casting in the UK, but now work in an antique/discerning junk shop in Australia. I enjoy collecting out of print and old church cook books and have way too many. I can't stand bad traffic, people who sniff, or white plastic garden furniture! If I had a month off I would most likely be asleep a lot of the time or eating dark chocolate, but If I had absolutely no responsibilities, you could find me at the Musee D'Orsay in Paris looking at the pictures.
