  1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients except the prawns and blend to a purée.

  2. Peel the prawns, but leave the tail on. Pour the marinade into a shallow bowl or a large food bag, add the prawns and make sure they are well-coated. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, but longer if you like.

  3. Heat a large griddle pan. When hot, add the prawns and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes, or until cooked through. While they are cooking keep basting all the time. Serve immediately.
