    Sweet and Spicy Prawns

    Prawns have such a delicate flavor that keeping from overwhelming them can be a challenge. We kept the shells on to protect them from over cooking, but the blackened flavor still came through. It was a little messy getting them out of their shells, but fun and worth the work! A fresh herb salad and light marinade made this a great appetizer.
    Preparation
    1. Marinate prawns for 20 mins-1 hour in 1/2 the prepared marinade, reserving the other 1/2 for garnish.

    2. Preheat grill to cook on LOW setting in open flame mode.

    3. Skewer prawns with two skewers, running parallel about 2 inches apart, in order to keep them from churning up during grilling.

    4. Grill 2 minutes each side, brushing with marinade, or until prawns have turned fully pink and taken on a bit of char.

    5. Serve hot with the reserved marinade, fresh cilantro, sliced habanero and black pepper to garnish.
