Chilli and Lemon Prawns

Another hit in our household and at BBQ's. I never have any leftover ...

Chilli and Lemon Prawns

1 tbs olive oil
2 tsp dried chilli flakes (I leave this out if the kids are having the prawns)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tbs lemon rind, julienned
1kg raw prawns
1/4 cup lemon juice

1. Place the oil, chilli flakes, salt and the lemon rind in a bowl. Remove the shells from the
prawns, leaving the tail on if possible. Stir the prawns into the mixture and leave to
marinate, for 2-3 hours, if time permits.

2. Heat the BBQ or grill until hot. Add the prawns and cook for 4-5 minutes or until
opaque and cooked through. Pour over the lemon juice.

Removing the black intestine... Although this is a yucky job, it makes the prawns look so much nicer. Once peeled, just run a sharp knife along the back edge of the prawn from top tothe tail, and just pull out the black icky stuff. Once cooked they look great prepared
like this.

Peeling the prawns is a time consuming job, but it always a popular dish at our BBQ’s.
