 Ingredients List

  • 2 To 10 cloves garlic, peeled
  • And coarsely chopped
  • 1 Red jalapeno pepper, stemmed
  • Seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 c Fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 c Fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 c Red-wine or sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 c Olive oil
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 lb Jumbo prawns


1. Prepare the garlic. Traditionally this is a garlicky sauce, but the
amount of garlic used would be according to personal taste. 2. Combine the
garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and mince finely. Add the oregano
and parsley and pulse to a fine chop. Add the vinegar, olive oil and salt,
processing until smooth and emulsified. (The sauce can be used immediately;
or pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.) 3. Remove
about 1/3 cup of the sauce to use as a baste for the prawns. Prepare a
charcoal or gas grill. Place prawns on a well-oiled grill, 4 to 6 inches
from the source of heat. Baste and cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or
until prawns are pink and cooked through. 4. Serve with the remaining sauce
on the side. Note: The sauce can also be used with beef, chicken or pork.
