Citrus Garlic Prawns

    10 mins

    Orange juice, mustard and basil combine to make an easy, delicious marinade for prawns. I've also sautéed them with the marinade and used the sauce with pasta or just mopped it up with crusty bread!

    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)
