    I actually marinated the prawns, then sauteed them in butter and garlic. Afterwards, I reduced the marinade and put on angel hair pasta. It was excellent.  -  24 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was FANTASTIC! I tweeked it a little. I added three heaped tbsp of dijonnaise mustard (DIJON/MAYONNAISSE), melted butter, and twice the amt of garlic into the marinade. Marinated it for one hour. Instead of grilling them i poured the marinade into a shallow pan, took the sauce up to the boil and then stirred in the rest of the prawns until cooked! The sauce was great served with freshly baked rolls.  -  25 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm not sure why there aren't any other reviews for this recipe. It was very good. Maybe some people are turned off by the term prawn. Anyway, it is a good recipe that both my family and friends enjoyed on Father's Day. Thanks.  -  15 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
