“A Caribbean recipe. I haven't tried these but they sounded great. Shrimp are called prawns in Australia. Don't forget to soak your skewers. Prep time does not include time to marinate.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup lime juice
  • 13 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons jamaican jerk spice
  • 3 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 kg large green prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour


  1. Stir together the lime juice, honey, soy sauce, and oil in a large bowl. Season with jerk seasoning, hot pepper sauce, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add the prawns and toss well to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for one hour to marinate.
