Saucy Barbecue Prawns

Saucy Barbecue Prawns

Serves 4

1kg green king prawns, shelled and deveined but tails left on
lemon wedges and parsley sprigs for garnish

Marinade:
1 tablespoon cornflour
2 tablespoons salt-reduced soy sauce
1 tablespoon white wine or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed

1. Prepare marinade in a mixing bowl. Blend cornflour smoothly with soy sauce. Add wine, honey, tomato sauce, garlic and mix.
2. Add prawns and stir until evenly coated. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
3. Preheat a barbecue hotplate, then spray with vegetable oil cooking spray.
4. Cook prawns on the hotplate, over a medium-hot barbecue, brushing with marinade. Turn frequently until cooked, about 5 to 8 minutes. The prawns turn pink-red when cooked. Do not overcook or prawns will be tough.
Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs, accompanied by rice and green salad.
