    1. In a blender or food processor, combine the orange juice and zest, lime juice and zest, olive oil, garlic and salt. Cover, and purée until smooth.
    2. Place prawns in a bowl, and pour the citrus marinade over them. Let them marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
    3. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the prawns about 3 minutes per side, in batches if necessary, until opaque. Spoon a little of the marinade in with them for extra flavour while they cook if you like.
