Maree’s Prawns

1kg green king prawns (*or* work out how many prawns you want to serve per person and buy the appropriate amount)
juice of 4 limes
6 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper
125ml light oil
wedges of lime or lemon to serve

Skewer the prawns (straightening them out) dividing them equally between the skewers. Place the prawns in a flat dish (not aluminium) with sides. Mix everything else together in a jar with a tight lid, shake well and pour over the prawns. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least one hour (too long will have them "cooking" in the marinade. Turn them occasionally.

Grill on the bbq (don't overcook) and serve with the wedges of lime/lemon.

If you're going to use the wok or frypan, cook as for a stir-fry.
