    Used different ingredients. Absolutely delicious!!!! Zesting six lemons is a lot of work BUT you can do it in advance as lemon zest freezes very well. Lemon juice also freezes well so I just squeezed the rest of the lemons and froze the juice. Also, I added four chopped roma tomatoes as my husband loves them. I think they added colour and a bit more flavour without overwhelming the dish. If you love coriander and prawn, fix this!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was really good. I served it over linguini. I only had 4 lemons, but that gave it plenty of flavour and I added 1 clove of chopped garlic to the pan. It's a really great light dish that doesn't overpower the prawn. Definitely a recipe to keep on hand. For a little extra flair, I am thinking that next time I may use limes instead of lemons and serve over rice with MARGARITAS! Yummy!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Pasta tonight - Salad the next time! The only change I made was in making a compromise. I just couldn't justify buying six lemons, for zest, when I only needed the juice of one. So, I used the zest and juice of the most enormous lemon I could find. That worked for me! Also, I used freshly ground "Medley Peppercorns" and 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic for a litte extra pizzaz.  -  29 Sep 2008
