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!

These skewered prawns with a hint of sesame, lemon and fresh ginger are wonderful for entertaining. Try not to marinade for any longer than 2 hours before barbecuing.
