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


Used different ingredients. Great recipe. Quick to make. I added 4 TBS whisky to the marinade to add some more zip. It was delicious. I will be sharing this recipe with others. Thanks, Zuzka! - 29 Sep 2008
