Citrus Tequila Prawns

I came upon this recipe from I've already made this recipe twice, with some adjustments. One of which was at a party that we had at home with Hubby's boss and colleagues. This is a great and easy recipe and makes for a wonderful addition to your buffet table.

Citrus Tequila Prawns

3 kilos prawns
1 whole garlic, finely chopped
3 - 4 teaspoons Sugar 
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Tequila (or more)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Kikkoman soy sauce 
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
Lime zest
Cilantro sprigs
Bamboo skewers

1. Soak bamboo skewers in water to prevent them from burning when grilling.
2. Peel and devein the prawns but keep the tails intact. Set aside.
3. In a bowl, mix garlic, sugar, oil, tequila, soy sauce, lime juice and lime zest.
4. Add the prawns to the marinade and soak for about 20 to 30 minutes.
5. Skewer the prawns, three to a bamboo stick to make a nice presentation.
6. Grill over charcoal 2-3 minutes per side. Do not overcook!
7. Serve immediately and garnish with cilantro and squeeze some fresh lime juice before serving.

I went into Doll House for a Sherri Hill dress and I had the worst time. The staff was rude and no help to me they made me feel as if I didn’t belong into their store. I well never return there and I am glad I didn’t purchase my dress from that store.
