Grilled Tarragon Prawns
When Good Shrimp or Prawns are in season along the Carolina Coast, this is a big favorite for us. This dish is very good next to a steak for Surf & Turf.
4 – 6 Prawns (about 1 lb)
1/4 tsp Tarragon
1/4 cup Water
Vegetable Oil Spray
Roll lemons on table to loosen up juice and squeeze into a zip lock bag. Add tarragon and water. Peel, butterfly and remove vein from prawns. Add prawns to marinade, seal and store in refrigerator for up to an hour. Spray or wipe oil on grill grate. Grill prawns on medium to high heat and cook till white all the way through, usually about 5 minutes. They cook very fast, so don’t go away.
It’s also good as a main course with a salad in summer.
