Grilled Prawns With Cilantro and Ginger Sauce
35 mins (prep 30, cooking 5)
7 ingredients
2-4 servings
Based on a recipe from Ken Hom’s Quick & Easy Chinese Cooking. Ken says, “Most of the work in this recipe may be done well in advance; the actual cooking takes but 5 minutes and the shellfish emerge from under the grill redolent of cilantro and tangy ginger, an ideal appetizer for guests.” They can be cooked on the grill or in the broiler. They make an elegant cold buffet dish, or a quick and easy lunch. Quantities are easily scalable. I think these are great and very pretty!
