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.

    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!
