Which means that it is the perfect time for grilled prawns.
Nothing around our home beckons the arrival of warm weather more than the appearance of these prawns. We love them!
It's one of those time, I'll dent the grocery budget and go all out for the largest, biggest, colossal prawns I can find. And find I did.
These lovelies are best marinated several hours if not overnight in a delicious blend of soy sauce, oil, finely chopped garlic, an overload of sriracha with just a dash of salt and pepper. Whisk it up and you have a delicious and scintillating marinade. Trust me, you'll end up licking the spoon (at least once or twice before your tongue begins to tingle).
I like to grill these prawns with the shell on for the simple reason that it keeps the mat moist and succulent with no risk of overcooking to a point of toughness.
To keep things cool and easy peasy, a snip along the back, performs double duty with de-veining and what you have are easy-peel-prawns once grilled.
I adore this with a refreshing salad like my Taverna Style Salad or even a summer fruit salsa which is the best way to soothe the heat and refresh the palate at the same time. Not counting Mojitos of course!
