This is a great easy prawn marinade, they are great on the BBQ, we put them out as appetizers but they can also be a main course. I've also sauteed them with the marinade and used the sauce with pasta or just lapped it up with French bread! ENJOY.

I actually marinated the prawns then sauteed them in butter and garlic. Afterwards I reduced the marinade and put on angel hair pasta. It was excellent. Read More

This was FANTASTIC! I tweeked it a little. I added three heaped tbsp of dijonnaise mustard (DIJON/MAYONNAISSE) melted butter and twice the amt of garlic into the marinade. Marinated it for one hour. Instead of grilling them i poured the marinade into a shallow pan took the sauce up to the boil and then stirred in the rest of the prawns until cooked! The sauce was great served with freshly baked rolls. Read More

I'm not sure why there aren't any other reviews for this recipe. It was very good. Maybe some people are turned off by the term prawn. Anyway it is a good recipe that both my family and friends enjoyed on Father's Day. Thanks. Read More

Pretty good Marinade. I also have to remind myself not to marinate too long because the shrimp turns out rubbery. I cooked this about 3 minutes a side and still overcooked it. Read More

Great taste! I added a little more garlic too. I only had time to marinate for about 20 minutes and they still had a great flavor. Read More

Only had time to marinate for 20 minutes but it was still flavorful. I didn't have lemon or orange so I added 1 tablespoon each of lemon juice and Sunny-D (all I had). It was still great! Read More
