About this recipe:This is an easy marinade for prawns, delicious and succulent cooked on the barbecue. I've also sautéed them with the marinade and used the sauce with pasta or just mopped it up with crusty bread!

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
juice of orange
1 teaspoon dried basil, or to taste
2 tablespoons white wine (optional)

In a glass dish, mix together the olive oil, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, orange juice, basil and white wine. Add the prawns, and stir to coat. Cover, and let marinate for 1 hour.
Heat barbecue to high heat.
Thread prawns onto skewers and cook on barbecue for 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until pink.
Cooked these as a tapas dish and immediately thought it was far too many for just two people - how wrong I was, they all got gobbled up at light speed.
I took some advice from another recipe and heated up the marinade with half a small pot of double cream to make a dip, it added a bit of extra lovely citrus flavour and went great with a bit of bread too. - 24 Jul 2012
