CB’s Grilled Honey & Lime Gulf Prawns

Prep: 1 hour Marinate: 1 hour Grill: 7–10 minutes Serves: 3–4


1 pound jumbo Gulf prawns (about 21 per pound) cleaned, tails on



2 tablespoons Italian salad dressing

2 tablespoons dry white vermouth

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 garlic clove, finely minced

2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped

1 teaspoon ground ginger


Basting Sauce:

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup honey

Combine marinade ingredients in a sealable bag and add Gulf prawns. Refrigerate for up to 1 hour.

Combine basting sauce ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and set aside.

Preheat grill to medium high. Place marinated prawns on hot grates. Use tongs to turn and sear all sides. When seared, remove the prawns to a holding pan away from direct heat.

Brush with basting sauce and allow to finish cooking, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Prawns may be served as a main course over rice or pasta or with a salad.
