    Used different ingredients. This was FANTASTIC! I tweeked it a little. I added three heaped tbsp of mayonnaise and dijon mustard , 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.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Delicious. Added cream to the marinade after removing the prawns and heated through in a shallow pan. Drizzled over the prawns when plated.  -  07 Apr 2010
