    I don't eat prawns but love to surprise my family with different recipes. They loved this one.  -  08 Apr 2015


    Used different ingredients. Very good! I made this recipe for a dinner party and it was a hit. I added scallops as well.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I eliminated the onion and garlic (for allergies) and and barbecued these on skewers with chunks of pineapple and served them on their own as starters. They were delicious and I wiil definitely serve them again.  -  29 Sep 2008
