Sometimes when you see a picture, a really beautiful picture of food, it can make you drool.
That's what this post did from apronandsneakers.com.

This literally made me want to drive the 30 miles to a large grocery store and purchase the biggest prawns shrimp they had in order to make these, like right now!

But of course, I can't just up and leave from work, so I will make a plan to purchase them as soon as I go and make these scrumptious looking morsels lickety-split!

Grilled Prawns with Honey Sauce

Prawns with Honey Sauce
Recipe adapted from Sapori Italiani, Barbecue

Serves 4

  • 12 prawns
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons acacia honey (or any similar honey)
  • 1 chili, chopped finely, seeds taken away
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped chives
  1. Take away the shells and veins of the prawns but leave the tails.  Insert each prawn in a skewer.  Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oil, lemon, honey, chili, parsley & chives.  
  3. Set aside about a tablespoon of the sauce.  Pour the rest of the sauce on the prawns and let them marinate for about 10 minutes. 
  4. Grill the prawns for about 2 minutes each side.
  5. Drizzle the sauce that you set aside on the cooked prawns and serve immediately.
