    **Jubes**'s Note:

    Super easy and tasty. Allow at least 30 minutes marinating time. You can use a large zip-lock bag to cut down on the washing up. You can use any seafood of your choice for this recipe. It's even pretty good with marinara mix.

      Looking for some new appetizers for my summer weekends I gave this one a go - loved it! Wonderfully flavourful and makes for great presentation - so looking forward to serving it to family and friends. Just know it's going to be a big hit. Made for the Auz/NZ Swap

      WOW! Simple to prepare and very tasty prawns. Made with written ingredients except I cooked them on a grill pan for a few minutes and it worked perfectly. The flavours were Moorish and I could easily ate the whole servings. I marinated the prawns for about 6 hours. Served them with dirty rice and creamy salad. Thanks **Jubes** for another fantastic recipe.

      I doubled this recipe so I'd be sure to have enough to include on a finger food buffet for a group I host, & these were definitely a big hit! Loved the flavors here & will keep this recipe for future reference ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Make My Recipe tag]
