Grilled Shrimp Recipe Method
  1. Shell all but 2 of the prawns...these will be used to garnish the finished dish.  
  2. Make the marinade by combining all of the other ingredients together evenly in a large bowl, just keeping a little of the chopped coriander back for the garnish.
  3. Add the shelled prawns and mix them well into the marinade.
  4. Cover and leave for at least 1 hour.
  5. Now thread the prawns neatly onto the skewers....approximately 5 on each stick.
  6. Pour the remains of the marinade into a baking tin with sides and place in a warm oven to heat slightly.
  7. Put your griddle on to a high heat and first grill the 2 shell on prawns for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Put to one side. Then cook the skewered prawns on one side for no more than 2 minutes, then turn them over and cook for another 2 minutes only.
  8. You can also cook these on a hot bbq for the same times.
  9. Take off the heat and place the skewered prawns into the tin containing the warmed marinade, turning them over a few times to pick up the juices.
  10. Serve immediately on a bed of shredded lettuce, with the extra warmed marinade poured over them. Garnish with the shell on prawn, tomato, coriander and lime wedges. Absolutely gorgeous!
