About this recipe:These BBQ prawns are sensational! I have always marinated and cooked the prawns with the shell on. This requires the shells being removed prior to eating so make sure you have bowls of water with lemon for people to dip their fingers into.
1kg king prawns
For the marinade
125ml soy sauce
60ml lemon juice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons mirin
4 crushed garlic cloves
2 tablespoon freshly grated root ginger

Combine marinade ingredients.
Place prawns in a plastic container with a sealed lid and pour the marinade over prawns and stir through.
Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. During the 30 minutes shake container to mix the marinade with the prawns.
Cook prawns in batches until they turn pink and are slightly blackened. If you overcook the prawns the shells take more effort to remove.
This recipe is messy. It is best served to close family and friends - it is not suitable as finger food or for any fine dining experience.
